From early January 2018, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) started carrying out basic criminal record checks.
Following an application made by a member of the Unlock team, we’ve produced a new step-by-step guide to applying directly to the DBS for a basic check using their online self-service channel.
We’re interested in hearing from anybody that’s had any specific problems when applying online for their basic DBS check so that we can feed these issues back to the DBS. You can email us with this at firstname.lastname@example.org.
