Temporary free-of-charge DBS applications and fast-track barred list check service due to COVID-19

Wednesday 01 April 2020

Since the 30th March 2020, the home office and the Disclosure and Barring Service have put temporary arrangements in place in response to COVID-19. They are now providing free DBS checks and fast-track emergency checks of the Adults’ and Children’s Barred List.

This applies to healthcare and social care workers needing to be recruited quickly for the care of the vulnerable and treatment of COVID-19. Please visit the GOV ‘Fast-track service: eligible roles’ to find out who is eligible.

If you would like to find out more about the temporary changes, please visit the GOV website.

At TerraQuest we are continuing to follow government advice and remain committed to supporting our clients and the safety of our staff and the local community. To read our COVID-19 Business Continuity Statement, please click here.
