Would I Be Refused a Mobile Catering Licence With Criminal Record?

by J. Cannon
(UK)

Please, would a person with a criminal record be allowed to earn a living with a mobile coffee cart? Could I get a licence to trade?

I have not been able to find a proper job for years, my elderly parents support me, but can't go on doing so.

I was convicted of indecent assault in 2005, but no one will employ me because of it.

In desperation, I have been researching self-employment options, and have come across your sit, which sounds interesting... however, I had better not get too optimistic, as my hopes are always dashed when it comes to disclosure of CRB!
Thanks,

J.Cannon

CRB Check Mobile Catering
by: David

Hello There,

This will depend on the individual council and if they carry out a CRB check. I know that this is the case if you intend to drive an ice cream van because you will be in direct contact with children, but I wouldn’t have thought so with mobile catering.

Saying that I’ve just found an article in which the council of East Riding carry out a CRB check on both Ice cream/mobile caterers and more.

I would contact the local council within the area you want to trade in to discuss your options

Best of luck
