The use of DBS checks, which superseded CRB checks in 2013 and combined the Criminal Records Bureau and Disclosure and Barring Service checks into one check. Whether or not you need a DBS check and what level of check is required depends upon several factors, including the role you wish to engage in, the responsibility you will have with dependent persons, such as children and vulnerable adults, and also whether or not you wil work with dependent persons unsupervised. In some cases, we may need to renew your DBS check, but unlike the previous CRB checks, it is at the employers discretion as to whether personnel need a new check. Your volunteer coordinator will be able to advise further.
