We strongly encourage you to transfer to the online service rather than the paper application. The online system is quick, easy (with less room for errors) and can be accessed from any device with internet access.

80% of disclosures are returned from the DBS in ten days or less. This allows you to place staff into settings more quickly whilst reducing administration time and cost.
