Do we need to DBS check our committee members, employees and volunteers ?

Please click here for definitions for regulated authority.

Regulated activities need to be carried out, or are likely to be carried out at least 4 times a month or overnight for them to be considered as ‘regulated activities’

Individuals who are undertaking work with children or adults that may be vulnerable, on an occasional or one-off basis cannot be the subject of a DBS check. The committee should still ensure any interaction with children forms part of a robust risk assessment.
