  • Enhanced
  • The Children’s Barred List has been checked
  • You MUST be registered with the Update Service**
  • We will accept DBS’s from another organisation if less then 12 months old

**Being registered with the Update Service means your DBS is portable and updated yearly, if it isn’t registered then it can’t be used by anyone other then the organisation who you received it through.
