Currently, we provide the DBS application form for people who are registering with us and have to apply for a DBS check.
We also manage the process of completed forms and pay DBS fees.
We are making changes to this process and we asked for your views last summer. The exercise and feedback form to submit your views is now closed. You can still tell us your views by completing our feedback form.
Later this year, we will no longer directly manage DBS checks. We will publish more information about this soon. The checks will then be managed online by a third-party service which will process your DBS application on our behalf.
We are now going through a tendering process to identify a supplier for the service.
