Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)
If you are working or volunteering with children or vulnerable adults you may be required to undertake a DBS check.  The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) helps employers make safer recruitment decisions and prevent unsuitable people from working with vulnerable groups, including children. It replaces the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).
