DBS Checks for Adoption

With eSafeguarding, you can get enhanced DBS checks for adoption through a service that offers a safe, secure and speedy process. Our cutting-edge online DBS checking service eliminates any stress and simplifies the procedure as a result. 

Adoption DBS Checks

When fostering or adopting a child, carers take on a huge responsibility and providers have to be 100% certain that foster carers are suitable for looking after young and vulnerable children. This is where eSafeguarding steps in, providing the necessary technology and services to offer a streamlined process for carrying out DBS checks, so that they are guaranteed a safe and secure environment.  

What Type of DBS Checks Do You Need for Fostering and Adopting?

When fostering and adopting, DBS checks (formerly known as CRB checks) become a vital factor of safeguarding for agencies with young and vulnerable children in their care. We know it can be difficult to know which DBS check you’ll need, but look no further as eSafeguarding has the answer. 


Fostering and adopting falls under regulated activity with children, meaning you must have an Enhanced DBS check with a Childs’ Barred List check. Also, any members of your household aged 18 years or over must have the same checks completed as well. 

Why eSafeguarding?

At eSafeguarding, we can offer you an easy and effective system to handle Enhanced and Standard DBS Checks for fostering and adopting. Our approach is quicker than paper applications and can be completed in as little as 24 hours as we instantaneously authenticate data. 

Our experienced and dedicated staff is continuously on hand to support and ensure that your DBS checks go smoothly for you and your applicants during fostering and adopting.
