FOI: 1221

In the last 5 years (or for years that figures are available), I would like to know:

  1. How many DBS Adult First (or their predecessor) were carried out?

  2. How many of these checks returned the result “No match exists” (or equivalent)?

  3. How many of these checks returned the result “Please wait for the certificate” (or equivalent)?

  4. Of the number of checks that returned “Please wait for the certificate” (or equivalent), how many DBS certificates were ultimately issued which included an offence which barred the individual from working with vulnerable adults?
