Halliwick AST has produced some guidance on DBS requirements (which we try to keep as up-to-date as reasoanbly possible) in our publication ‘Safe to Swim’ which you can order via this page of our website.

Legislation and practices relating to safeguarding and to DBS requirements have changed in recent years.

Halliwick AST tries to ensure its members are aware of the latest requirements but to ensure you obtain the latest information you are advised to visit www.gov.uk/disclosure-barring-service-check/overview which provides some general information on DBS checks and what the requirements are.

Please note that Halliwick AST does not and does not purport to provide legal advice and nothing on this website or in Halliwick AST’s publications should be construed as providing legal advice.  Where necessary, you should seek your own independent advice.
