Disclosure and Barring Scheme (DBS)

The statutory organisation responsible for barring unsuitable staff from the children’s and adult’s workforce. Referrals are normally made by employers following investigation into misconduct but other statutory agencies can also refer in certain circumstances. Staff who are to be employed in regulated activity must be checked against the barred list prior to taking up employment.
