What is a DBS check?

A Disclosure and Barring (DBS) check is for people who do certain types of jobs, including working regularly with children, vulnerable people and in healthcare. It checks a person’s details against criminal records and other sources, including the Police National Computer and the Independent Safeguarding Authority to make sure there is nothing to prevent them doing their job.


Types of DBS check
  • Standard DBS check: This gives details of all convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings from the Police National Computer (PNC).
  • Enhanced DBS check: This is the highest level of DBS check. We recommend it for people working with children and/or vulnerable adults. It has the same PNC information as the standard check but also includes a check of police records held locally and information held by the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).
  • ISA Adult First check: This is an extra check that can be done before the results of the enhanced check. It allows an employer to access a list of people who the police deem unsuitable to work with vulnerable adults.
