DBS - Disclosure and Barring Service
A Disclosure Certificate is issued after a search of the Police National Computer (PNC) and other relevant Authorities.
The process can take up to two months to complete.
A recent Disclosure is mandatory for carers who work for Agencies, but not mandatory for carers making an arrangement directly with a private client.
The legislation is quite specific about this. Much of the extensive legislation and regulation that covers Adult Social Care
specifically excludes private arrangements between individuals.
