New DBS arrangements from January 2022
As mentioned in the October newsletter, from January 4th 2022 Disclosure and Baring Service (DBS) checks must be carried out every three years.
This is to bring the church in line with good practice across the charity/voluntary sector. We would ask you to get your parish DBS checks renewed in line with this policy as soon as possible, and certainly within two years.
