Police Checks

Checks will be made on all members of your household should they be aged 18 or over. A DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check will be made to ascertain if you have any record of unprotected convictions, cautions, reprimands or warnings. Anyone involved with working with or safeguarding children and/or vulnerable adults has to be checked.

You cannot arrange a DBS check on yourself. This must be conducted on your behalf by an employer or recruiting agency. Once your application has been made, the DBS aims to complete 75% of all applications within 14 calendar days from receipt and 90% of all applications within 28 calendar days from receipt. For your convenience, it is possible to monitor the progress of your application using the DBS tracking service.
