DBS Guidance

This email is to remind you to check the updated DBS Guidance which is on England Netball’s Safeguarding page; click link to read:


Ø  It is essential that everyone who is responsible for appointing people to roles within Clubs, Academies or any other environments, is familiar with the Guidance and understands the new requirements for carrying out criminal checks on people that fall into the “Regulated Activity” category.


Ø  ‘Regulated activity’ is defined as: ‘unsupervised teaching, training, instruction, care for, treatment or supervision of U18s. Please see the attached flow chart which helps you to identify which roles are classed as ‘regulated activity’.


Ø  Posts which previously required a CRB do not necessarily still meet the criteria, so you need to be sure that the role is still eligible for a check.


Ø  Seeking an enhanced DBS check on someone who does not meet these new criteria (ie is not carrying out regulated activity) is a criminal offence.


Thank you for your cooperation. Should you have any queries or need any other information after you have read the guidelines, please do not hesitate to contact me or Susan Hudson.


Kind regards,
