Fundamental to protecting young people in sport is the need to carry out appropriate risk assessments when recruiting personnel, whether staff or volunteers. The law enables enhanced Barred List checks on all those in regulated activity and you will find guidance as to who can have a check and how to do that.
It is SLSGB policy that all those in regulated activity must have a DBS check done with our umbrella company, Online Disclosures, every 3 years.
Alternatively having applied for a DBS you can sign up for the Update service which enables SLSGB to check annually your DBS, providing no new information has been disclosed a further full application would not be necessary. You would be required to complete an SLSGB consent form.
Important – keep them securely

Particular attention must be given to the guidance in the fair use of the information in respect of those whose Certificate reveals a disclosure or similar information.
