DBSs & back office services

BARN offers a range of back-office services for members and non-members.

Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks

We are able to complete the DBS checks face to face or virtually through video calls, but we have to see the original ID documents. This is a chance to previous guidance.

We offer a checking service for DBS applications at the following rates:

Charges for full members

Charges for non-members

Paid staff £75 £85
Paid staff that need external validation * £85 £95
Volunteers £20 £25
Volunteer that need external validation * £30 £35

* External validation is needed when it’s not possible to present all the documents that are required.

There’s strict rules about whether you’re able to apply or if the DBS defines you as a volunteer though – click here for more information.
