DBS Requirements – Some volunteer roles within require Disclosure and Baring Service (DBS, formerly CRB) checks. This check is designed to assist the Trust in making safe decisions around recruiting volunteers by checking the criminal record of volunteers carrying out activity with vulnerable people or children. Having a criminal record will not necessarily prevent an applicant becoming a volunteer, any applicant with a criminal record should inform volunteer services, who will risk assess each case on an individual basis.
