How does the DBS check work?
Anyone working with children and vulnerable adults, or in regulated activity as defined by the Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults Act (SVGA), should have a DBS Disclosure before they are offered employment.
If an organisation wishes to apply for DBS checks as part of their recruitment process they must be entitled to ask exempted questions under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (ROA) 1974 Exceptions Order 1975.
A Disclosure is a document containing information held by the police and government departments. It can be used by employers and voluntary organisations to make safer recruitment decisions. There are two types of Disclosure – Standard and Enhanced.
