What are DBS Checks?
The Disclosure and Barring Service is the new name for what used to be called the Criminal Records Bureau. Many people are familiar with the term CRB, and DBS has now replaced this.
These checks can be done by organisations on staff and volunteers whose work involves close and (regular) contact with children and vulnerable adults.
It is very important that employers are certain about eligibility before requesting a DBS check, as it is an offence to ask for a check on someone who isn’t eligible.
Eligibility information can be found on the DBS website www.gov.uk/dbs
ALL OF OUR DBS CHECKS ARE NOW RUN BY OUR TEAM AT THE SUPPORT4DACORUM VOLUNTEER CENTRE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MARLOWES
