Our Decision: A guide to using Disclosure and Barring Service Checks

 

Our Decision

 

A simple guide to using Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks as part of managing safeguarding risk for the voluntary and community sector.

 

Written by Children England, with the help and assistance of Safe Network and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), and in partnership with the National Council for Voluntary Youth Services (NCVYS)

The unique guide has been developed to provide voluntary and community sector(VCS) organisations working with children, young people and families with a resource to support them with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) application process and effective decision-making related to the level of supervision and checking required for different roles.
