Disclosure and Barring Services Available Through Medway Council

21-Sep-2018

         

Medway Council can help organisations to apply for the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. 

If you do fewer than 100 checks a year you must use a company known as an umbrella body, 100 or more checks a year you can choose to register with DBS or use an umbrella body.

As a registered umbrella body with DBS, Medway Council can offer this checking service to external organisations.

In order to have a DBS check, the organisation is asked to commit to their DBS policy and they will help you to determine is a DBS is required and which level is appropriate. A form is issued to the applicant and once completed a designated person from the organisation will complete the ID Check process and send the form. DBS will then issue the document straight to the applicant. The process can take up to 8 weeks.

How much it costs depends on the type of check.

An Enhanced or Basic Check for a Volunteer would cost £16.80.

A Basic Check for staff would cost £42.80.

 An Enhanced Check for staff would cost £60.80.

If you need any further help or if you would like to use their checking service for your organisation, please call HR advice on 01634 332878 or email dbsadvice@medway.gov.uk.
