Basic disclosures are useful where a role is not eligible for an enhanced check but requires (or publicly indicates) a certain level of trust by an organisation. 

This could include roles such as:

  • Worship leaders
  • People providing transport to/from events
  • Administrators and Finance officers
  • Food bank volunteers
  • Welcomers and refreshment servers
  • Preachers
  • and others 

Anyone can apply as long as they live or work in the UK (those living/working in Scotland will need to apply via Disclosure Scotland and those in Northern Ireland via Access NI).

The DBS fee for a basic disclosure is £18.00 per check (no difference for paid or volunteer workers) plus our admin fee (the same as you already pay for your Enhanced checks). 

Basic disclosures are a very useful recruitment aid but please remember that a basic must NEVER be used in place of an enhanced disclosure, where the role is eligible for an enhanced check.
