In response to Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Home Office and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) have put temporary arrangements in place, to provide DBS checks and fast-track emergency checks of the Adults’ and Children’s Barred Lists free-of-charge.

To support this, Disclosure Services has agreed to waive our Admin Fee for the first 1000 applications submitted by healthcare and social care workers that are being recruited in connection with the provision of care and treatment of coronavirus in England and Wales.

This will include any applications
