Vibrant Nation's DBS Checking service provides an online criminal records check, as part of our commitment to safeguarding.
The service is available to any organisation which is eligible to conduct such checks, for volunteers and paid staff alike.
A Criminal Records Check should form an important part of your safeguarding and welfare policies but should not, at any time, be considered a solution in isolation to a host of other robust safeguarding prevention measures.

A request to add an application to the update service can only be made at the time at which a request for a new check is made, which will also be subject to the new check fees as described above.
