Young people playing paranetball

In order to protect young people and adults at risk in sport, it is essential to carry out risk assessments and safe recruiting, whether of staff or volunteers. The law enables enhanced Barred List checks on all those in Regulated activity and you will find guidance as to who can have a check and how to do that.

It is England Netball policy that all those in Regulated Activity must have a DBS check done with our umbrella company, First Advantage, every 3 years. This is regardless of whether you already have had a check through other volunteering or work roles. If you are a member of EN staff you don’t need another one for volunteering with a netball club. If you have a coach and another volunteering role in netball you don’t need 2 certificates.

If you are a club or coach who has only adult members check here whether rules that apply to adults with care and support needs apply (they won’t apply in most circumstances) ACT-DBS-Flowchart-Adults (anncrafttrust.org)

See documents below for explanation of the process, considering safe recruitment more widely, and related policies.

DBS Certificates

Important – keep them securely

Your certificate must only be used in accordance with the Disclosure and Barring Service’s Code of Practice and any other guidance issued by the DBS.
