DISCLOSURE AND BARRING SERVICE (DBS)

The Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) have merged to become the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). CRB checks are now called DBS checks. We have an online facility for you to obtain a DBS check (cost applies) or indeed, if you have a current DBS (less than 12 months old) that is on the Update Service, with your permission we can check the status. Any DBS that isĀ olderĀ than 12 months old, or not subscribed to the Update Service will need to apply for a new disclosure via LCJ. This if FREE if you are working for us on a longer term basis.
