Childcare plays a huge part in our society and of course, safeguarding is of the utmost importance. Whether you’re running a nursery, a creche, a children’s home, an after-school club or a children’s sports team, DBS checks (formerly known as CRB checks) should be a top priority in your recruitment process.
Members of staff who are working, or volunteering, in ‘regulated activity’ with children will require an Enhanced DBS check in England or Wales, or those carrying out such activity more than three times a month will require an Enhanced DBS Check with the Child Barred List check.
Please note that Regulated Activity continues to exclude any activity carried out in the course of family relationships, and personal, non-commercial relationships.
The eSafeguarding system is fast, safe, and secure. Enhanced disclosures can come back within 24 hours and four out of five applications are completed within three days.
If you want a straightforward and effective system to manage DBS checks for your childcare organisation, then there is no better choice than eSafeguarding.
Our helpful and experienced team of countersignatories are always on hand to help and advise you and your applicants with all aspects of the DBS process.
