DBS Checking Service

The DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Checking Service is currently paused

As has been the case for many voluntary sector organisations in Somerset, the past 18 months have resulted in a significant increase in demand for our services. Due to this, and in order to manage our priorities as an organisation, we have taken the difficult decision to put our DBS service on pause as of Friday 10th September 2021.

After this date we will no longer accept or advise upon new DBS applications. Any applications received after 10th September will be disposed of in line with DBS handling. Applications received before this date will be processed as usual.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. We appreciate this is an important and necessary service and we will be updating this page in coming weeks with further advice and information.
