Great stuff! Volunteering with our group can mean anything from spending a few minutes every few months on an administrative task to helping run section meetings. We’d love to hear from you about what you would be willing to offer.

DBS Checks : What is required?

All adults who help with the work of 1st Creigiau on anything other than a very occasional basis (less than 4 times a year) must undertake a compulsory DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) check.

Whilst this check is one of whether or not an adult has a criminal record, the primary reason it is undertaken is that it allows the assisting adult to become a member of the Scout Association and hence insured when working with young people.

Here are the government guidelines on what ID you need to bring to start the check:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dbs-identity-checking-guidelines/id-checking-guidelines-for-dbs-check-applications

Broadly speaking, the ID requirements can be summarized as follows:

  1. Full name including middle name
  2. Address, telephone number, email address
  3. Date of birth
  4. Passport – number, start date, and expiry date
  5. Driving license – number and expiry date
  6. One utility or bank/building society bill dating from the quarter before the application

Access to the internet and the ability to use email is an absolute requirement for a DBS Check.
