All DBS applications should now be completed online. Paper forms can only now be used in exceptional circumstances.
Coaches and other volunteers - if you need a DBS ask your Club Welfare Officer to email you the invitation to complete one.
Clubs and Club Welfare Officers - make sure everyone at your Club who needs a DBS, has one. See ECB list of roles requiring one.
All Clubs should now have an online DBS document checker - if your Club does not have one, e mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new system is very user friendly, only takes a few minutes to fill in the form, and 3 or 4 minutes to carry out the document checking. Disclosures are typically issued within a week.
We've waited a long time for this - but early indications are that it is going to be very good!
