DBS Checks

What are DBS Checks?

The DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) was formed after the merge of the CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) and ISA (Independent Safeguarding Authority) as a means for employers to make informed and safe recruitment decisions. Carrying out DBS checks allows businesses to safeguard their organisation by preventing unsuitable candidates from working with vulnerable people.

There are 3 different levels of Criminal Record Check;

Taxi Licensing

We work alongside licensing teams to safeguard the public by providing councils with a professional, safe and efficient service for licensing drivers.

Support for Councils

Everything we do is driven by a desire to simplify the licensing process for Licensing Managers and their drivers and we provide on-going advice and support every step of the way.

Support for Drivers

Applying for a taxi licence can be complex and time consuming which is why we provide a service to help drivers become 'application ready' and are on hand to guide them through each step of the process.

Barred List Checks

Personnel Checks are able to get instant results from a barred list check for a fraction of the cost of a regular DBS check. A Barred List check confirms if the applicant could be barred for working with children or vulnerable adults. There are two types of barred list check:

List 99 Check

Education providers are able to complete this type of check, now known as Children's Barred List Search through Personnel Checks. We can take your applicants’ details over the phone and inform you on the same day if the individual is barred from working with children, which will then be confirmed in writing for your records.

DBS Adult First

Formerly known as ‘ISA Adult First’ and 'POVA Check', the DBS Adult First is exclusive to the care sector and allows an individual to be checked against the DBS Adults’ Barred List. Dependent on the result of the check, this service allows the individual to start work under supervision while waiting for their full DBS check results.

DVLA Checks

Personnel Checks allow you to access drivers' DVLA records online quickly by providing a speedy driving licence checking service, allowing you to validate employees' driving licence information securely.

We can perform checks on drivers via an online portal which links directly to the DVLA, producing instant results and creating an auditable online record.

Safeguarding Training

Personnel Checks have partnered with 2 Young People Organisations to strengthen the delivery of the crucial safeguarding awareness and training which has been developed in conjunction with a youth charity. This framework tackles the importance of the role and responsibilities of all involved to ensure everyone is equipped with the correct processes and structure to safeguard young people and society

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the safeguarding training session, your staff will be able to;

  • Understand the need to protect vulnerable adults, young people and children
  • Identify possible victims of abuse and exploitation by understanding indicators of risk
  • Identify sources of advice and pathways for reporting concerns
  • Understand their roles and responsibilities in relation to personal safety and security

Safeguarding Audits

Do you do anything to engage your young people in child protection and safeguarding such as CSE or grooming?

How effective is the engagement?

Who would generally be the Designated Safeguarding Lead?

How robust are your safeguarding policies and procedures?

These are all questions that if coming into contact with children or vulnerable adults we should be able to answer confidently and thoroughly.

Safeguarding should be at the top of the agenda of many organisations, however with ever lasting to do lists, we understand this is hard to achieve. Our specialist team can conduct a safeguarding audit within your organisation to ensure you are meeting every expectation when it comes to protecting the people under your care. We will look at your current processes and make informed improvements on how you can achieve the 'gold standard' of safeguarding.
