DBS Guidance

Message from CSAS to PSRs

We have received a few queries this week regarding increased support being provided within parishes to those affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.

Please ensure that if parishes are providing services/ministry that involves regulated activity, the usual rules in respect of DBS checks are applied.  New volunteers must be checked in the usual way where there is eligibility.

If parishioners are making private arrangements with their neighbours and friends to support each other, in a way that is not organised or overseen by the parish, then this does not require DBS checking.
