|Enhanced DBS Disclosure
Enhanced DBS Disclosure & Barred Lists
|Enhanced DBS checks are for posts that involve work in a “Regulated Activity” and for a regulated activity provider with children or vulnerable adults. Enhanced checks are also issued for certain statutory purposes such as gaming and lottery licenses. Enhanced checks contain the same information as Standard checks but with the addition of any locally held police force information considered relevant to the job role.
An enhanced check with information from the DBS’s children and/or adults barred list is only available for those individuals engaged in regulated activity with children and /or adults and a small number of posts as listed in the Police Act regulations, for example prospective adoptive parents.
|Volunteer Disclosure||Standard and Enhanced criminal checks for volunteers do not incur a Disclosure fee so only the administration fee applies.||£18.00|
|Adult First check||The Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) Adult First check searches the Department of Health’s list of people who it bars from working with vulnerable adults. Those employing people to posts that involve working with vulnerable adults may be able to request a check of the Vulnerable Adults’ Barred list. ISA Adult First described in Department of Health guidance as, where a care worker may be allowed to start work in a care home, for a domiciliary care agency, or as an adult placement carer before a DBS check has been issued.
ISA Adult First checks can only be applied for if you submit a DBS Enhanced Disclosure application.
All of the above costs include identification and address validation, administration and any standard postage charges and all agency fees including VAT, however additional costs may be incurred for the return of original documents by special delivery if required.
