The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) has reduced their fees from 6th April 2022.  The new fees are as follows:

Basic DBS check – £18 (previously £23)
Standard DBS check – £18 (previously £23)
Enhanced DBS check – £38 (previously £40)
Enhanced with Barred Lists DBS check – £38 (previously £40)

As from 1st September 2022 the Diocese has made the decision to cover these fees so payment by parishes will no longer be requested.
