The Disclosure & Barring Service has announced emergency measures to fast-track DBS checks for key emergency personnel and frontline healthcare professionals in order to aid the fight against coronavirus.
Under the recently enacted The Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 (Commencement No. 16) Order 2020 these enhanced DBS checks, including a screen against the adult and children’s barred list, will be free of the usual government charge for all eligible roles.
As an emergency worker:
At Veriphy, we are doing everything we can to ensure that those who need DBS checks for critical key roles can apply immediately.
Before applying please ensure to read the DBS’s guidance on community volunteering.
Please note as a volunteer, you will not pay the government DBS check fee – just a Veriphy admin fee.
Loving your company's services! I switched to you from another provider, and what you deliver is much better, and your web interface is so much simpler to use.
I absolutely love it. I can't believe how easy it is to use and how user friendly it is in its format.
Love it – very happy client as well as we can now speed up the process by 4 days for him.
The system was extremely easy to set up and we were up and running with it very quickly… It made a refreshing change to be in that position so quickly.
This is very user friendly – brilliant! I wish I’d discovered this at the start of trading.
Very clear & simple. Used it, without reading the manual of course, just to give it a try. Excellent service.
I have just used Veriphy for the first time. It is excellent – so much easier than chasing old passports and utility bills that are sent by email.
