April 2020 Update

Please see important information here about a temporary arrangement being put in place by the Disclosure and Barring Service to help provide DBS checks and fast-track emergency checks of the adults’ and children’s barred lists, free of charge to healthcare and social care workers being recruited in connection with the care and treatment of COVID-19 in England and Wales.

Please note that due to current measures that have been put in place as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, the DBS ID checking guidance will be changed for a temporary period.

The change will enable:

  • ID documents to be viewed over video link
  • Scanned images to be used in advance of the DBS check being submitted

For more information about the changes, please visit www.gov.uk/government/news/covid-19-changes-to-dbs-id-checking-guidelines

If you have any questions, please email customerservices@dbs.gov.uk

We are committed to supporting you through these challenging times, assisting your business as we all adapt to our new remote working model.

We have a robust contingency plan in place that allows us to support your business, despite service delivery and workplace issues, to ensure minimal disruption to your DBS applications and requirements.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to our eSafeguarding team with any questions or enquiries you may have at this time.
