DBS have temporarily changed the rules surrounding ID validation. Considering the Government advice to work from home where possible, and the impact this will have on receiving physical ID documents the changes will enable:

 ID documents to be viewed over video link

 scanned images to be used in advance of the DBS check being submitted

Please continue to process your DBS checks in the same way and use the link below to understand the checking ID guidelines issued by DBS:

A current DBS is not enough for Safe Recruitment, further details can be found in the Swim Wales Child Protection Policy on the Swim Wales website.
