DBS Referral Training

Thursday, April 9, 2015

On Tuesday 31st March, Rob attended a training session that was hosted by the Disclosure and Barring Service. The event was in Nottingham and was very well attended. The focus of the training was to help Care providers and personnel suppliers identify when and how they must make a referral to the DBS.

The training has helped us to understand the circumstances under which we have a legal duty to refer individuals to the DBS and what criteria must be satisfied prior to making a referral. With this knowledge we are better placed to maintain high standards of care throughout the sector and ensure that unsuitable individuals are identified and barred from working with vulnerable people as soon as possible.
