Last week, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) hosted a webinar for Skills for Care, around DBS checks in the social care sector.
The webinar aimed to improve understanding of:
- emergency COVID-19 Barred List(s) checks and free-of-charge checks
- the DBS eligibility tool
- barring referrals
The webinar can be found online here.
A collection of questions were sent in prior to the webinar and these were answered throughout, but a number of questions were also received throughout the presentation and afterwards. All questions have now been answered and collated in an FAQs document, which can be found below.
