What is a DBS check?
The Disclosure and Barring Service helps employers make safer recruitment decisions each year by processing and issuing DBS checks for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. DBS also maintains the adults' and children's Barred Lists and makes considered decisions as to whether an individual should be included on one or both of these lists and barred from engaging in regulated activity.
There are different combinations of ID documents that are acceptable.
You must provide one document from group 1, and two more documents from groups 1 or 2a or 2b. One of the documents must verify your current address.
