Q: How do we go about ensuring all of our staff have up to date Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks (previously CRB checks)?


   A Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check is a process of gathering information about an applicant's criminal history.  It can also show when someone is barred from working with a particular vulnerable group such as children.  All registered childcare providers must hold a current DBS Certificate which, in most cases, needs to be undertaken every 3 years.  The Registered Person, Responsible Individual and Person In Charge must apply for DBS checks to register through CSSIW (Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales).

Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids' Clubs, in partnership with Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) Criminal Records Bureau, can support clubs (which are members) to access DBS checks for others involved in working in and managing the out of school club.
