Need a DBS check for a volunteer or member of staff? Our DBS service is still available via email.

We’re registered by the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) to carry out DBS checks for a whole range of employers, community organisations and groups, for both staff and volunteers.
The DBS aims to help you make safer decisions when you’re taking on staff or volunteers, preventing unsuitable people from working with vulnerable groups, including children. So whether you’re a community organisation taking on volunteers or an employer hiring new staff, why not get in touch to find out how we can help?
How much does our DBS service cost?
DBS checks for volunteers are free – the only charge we make for our service is £15 per application to cover our administration costs.
For staff DBS checks, the DBS charges £23 for a standard application and £40 for an enhanced application. The only charge we make for our service is £15 per application to cover our administration costs.

Thank you for your help
To help us process DBS checks as quickly as possible and support community organisations, groups and employers in these challenging times, please email us, rather than calling. Many thanks and remember, we’re here to help if you need any advice, support or guidance.
