Disclosure and Barring Service

The Disclosure and Barring Service in the Diocese of Sheffield is now provided by CCPAS (Churches’ Child Protection Advisory Service).  This involves completing an online disclosure application form via a fully secure system.   There are many benefits to using an external provider, including that results of DBS checks are received much quicker than with paper applications resulting in faster recruitment decisions. 

Further information and registration documents for this can be found in the CCPAS Guidance below, together with a copy of the Eligibility Criteria for DBS checks.
