Social Work DBS
Social workers work with some of the most vulnerable people in our society and so whether you’re working as a counsellor, youth or social worker, a DBS check will be needed.
What type of DBS will you need?
Adult social workers provide ongoing support to adults in addition to assessing and reviewing their needs. This means they are in regulated activity with adults and can be asked to apply for an Enhanced DBS check with an Adults’ Barred List check.
Child social workers provide ongoing support to children in addition to assessing and reviewing their needs. This means they are in regulated activity with children and can be asked to apply for an Enhanced DBS check with a Childs’ Barred List check.
Health care professionals providing psychotherapy and counselling are undertaking regulated activity and can be asked to apply for an Enhanced DBS check and the associated Barred List checks.
Youth workers work with young people, and their interactions are often unsupervised. Due to this, youth workers are required to undergo an Enhanced DBS check with a Childs’ Barred List check
