Disclosure & Barring Service

The EPNAVCO Volunteer Management Policy states that in all volunteer placements that the safety of children and vulnerable adults is paramount. Volunteers who have significant access to such clients will be asked to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service Check by the organisation they wish to volunteer for.

Volunteers will be asked to complete a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) form and to provide proof of identity and address for the five years prior to application. Only original documentation is acceptable. Identity documents which must be produced are current Passport, Driving licence and an official document containing your NI number. Two Utility bills or bank statements showing your current address that are no older than 3 months. If you have had a name change, for example  marriage, adoption or you have changed your name by deed poll, we must see the appropriate documents. Other documents could include: original birth certificate, Marriage certificate etc

The completed application will then be forwarded to the Disclosure and Barring Service in Liverpool where the information supplied will be verified and checked against national databases.

On satisfactory completion applicants will receive a Disclosure Certificate this can be made portable online by the applicant if done within 14 days of date of issue. If for any reason, the Disclosure Certificate is not issued, the applicant will be informed by letter from the Disclosure and Barring Service.
