DBS Disclosures Service

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).

Young Bristol is registered with the DBS as an Umbrella agency, allowing us to process Disclosure Checks on behalf of our member clubs and other registered organisations.

If your group or organisation wish to access the Young Bristol Disclosure Service please contact us. We have an information pack which we can send you which explains fully how the scheme operates and includes example policies which your organisation may need to adopt (it is a DBS requirement that users of the service have written policies covering the Use and Handling of Disclosure Information and the Recruitment of Ex-Offenders).

There are three categories of Disclosure. Young Bristol are able to provide ENHANCED and STANDARD Checks. For information on what level of check your job position is eligible for, please refer to the DBS website – https://www.gov.uk/disclosure-barring-service-check/overview


There is also a BASIC level check. This level of check is available to anyone for any purpose and can be applied for as an individual through, and only from, Disclosure Scotland. For further information please visit their website : http://www.disclosurescotland.co.uk/basicdisclosureonline/index.htm


NOTE: The DBS definition of a volunteer is ‘A person who spends their time doing something that aims to benefit either an individual or group (other than, or in addition to, close relatives), and is not paid (except for travelling and other approved out-of-pocket expenses).’

The Young Bristol fee for processing these checks are:
