What is a Disclosure and Barring (DBS) Umbrella Body?

VANL is now registered with an umbrella body for DBS checks which means that we are able to provide you with the relevant application forms and are authorised to confirm and sign off applicants’ identification.

What does the DBS do?

The Disclosure and Barring Service checks the applicant’s identity details first. It then checks lists held by the Police, Department for Education and Skills, and  Department of Health.

In addition an Enhanced Disclosure could contain ‘soft’  information about warnings, suspicions, investigations and unproven allegations.

Who can use this service?

Voluntary Action North Lincolnshire offers this service to anyone who wishes to use the service.

Why carry out DBS checks?

It is good practice to have all staff/volunteers DBS checked if they come into contact with children and young people or vulnerable adults in order to minimise the possibility of employing somebody who is unsuitable.






Volunteer price includes both standard and enhanced.
