Update on Disclosure and Barring

Sandy Adirondack has done a general update on her ‘Legal Update’ web pages on Disclosure and Barring Service checks (previously known as criminal record checks), http://www.sandy-a.co.uk/employment.htm#dbs-checks. This includes the distinction between being eligible for checks and being required to carry them out.

She also references the Volunteering England information sheet on DBS checks as giving the clearest information (so far) about eligibility, available at http://www.volunteering.org.uk/component/gpb/protectionandsafeguarding along with other useful links.
