Disclosure Barring Service (DBS)

Patoss offers Full or Associate members the opportunity to get a Disclosure Barring Service - Enhanced Disclosure (formerly CRB)

There are three types of criminal record checks available, including Basic Disclosure, Standard and Enhanced DBS Checks. Standard and Enhanced checks are more thorough, searching for cautions, warnings, reprimands or convictions, and often needed for roles that involve contact with children or adults in vulnerable positions.

As an umbrella organisation for CareCheck and acting Professional Body for its members, Patoss can offer Full and Associate members, who are self-employed or those are not covered under their own education centre, the ability to apply for an Enhanced DBS Check.

If you are already a Patoss Full or Associate Member and wish to apply for a DBS check, you can apply through the “My DBS” option found in your Members Area of this website.
