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 enhanced DBS check fees so payment for enhanced DBS checks carried out by parishes will no longer be requested.
