Involve is a registered umbrella body for DBS checks. Predominantly, we process checks for the staff (both paid and unpaid) of voluntary and community organisations. Our service is also available to private sector organisations.
Currently the DBS charges £44 for an enhanced paid staff check, checks for volunteers remain free of charge.
We charge a £20 administration fee for every check that we process – both for paid staff and volunteers.
We see each applicant for a short face to face meeting where we check the form has been completed properly and check and record ID.
