Appeal Timeframe

Post by JCOX4 » Sat Feb 15, 2020 8:22 am

Morning all.
I am currently appealing my failed vetting decision. It was failed due to previous convictions which I do understand.
However my appeal was sent in and it has been with the appeal panel for 4 weeks now!! In my opinion this should be the max time I should be waiting for the outcome. SSCL are horrific when I call and just tell me it will take as long as it takes and are absolutely no help at all.
My questions are:
Anyone have experience with appeal, if so how long does it take?
Does anyone have advice on someone I can call? (Ive tried establishment but they cant help)

Cheers
J

Yes bear, it is very frustrating. I am seeing people get through the whole vetting process in less than 4 weeks!

Easy for me to say, but try and out it out of your head, you’ll get your call or letter out of the blue and it will make your day when they decide in your favour !!
