DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checks

 

It is essential that everyone who is responsible for appointing people to roles within Clubs, Academies or any other environments, is familiar with the Guidance and understands the new requirements for carrying out criminal checks on people that fall into the “Regulated Activity” category. 

 

‘Regulated activity’ is defined as: ‘unsupervised teaching, training, instruction, care for, treatment or supervision of U18s.

For further detailed information about DBS, visit: https://www.englandnetball.co.uk/DBS

 

Posts which previously required a CRB do not necessarily still meet the criteria, so you need to be sure that the role is still eligible for a check. 

Seeking an enhanced DBS check on someone who does not meet these new criteria (ie is not carrying out regulated activity) is a criminal offence.  

For details of how to apply for an online DBS check please click here.  Once you have completed the online application please contact Netball South who will be able to put you in contact with a local document verifier to check your documents.
