Eligibility for DBS Disclosures
Broadly speaking those who are eligible for Enhanced level Disclosures are those who are engaged in teaching, training, caring or supervisory roles or those who are their managers – this includes the relevant trustees (not necessarily all).
Other people may fall within eligibility for Standard Disclosures but this does not involve people such as administrators, caretakers, receptionists, property stewards or key holders who do not have direct contact with those who are in the vulnerable groups. A similar situation pertains for church coffee shops, etc – contact with child customers is not deemed to be sufficiently close to bring one into the eligibility criteria for a Disclosure.
