As of 1st October 2019, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) will be reducing the cost of DBS checks.

The new fees will be as follows:

The cost of subscribing to the Update Service will continue to be £13 per year and an Adult First Check will also remain unchanged at £6.

Standard and enhanced checks will continue to be free-of-charge for volunteers.

If you’re applying for a check through an Umbrella Body it’s possible that you’ll be charged an additional administration fee on top of the cost of the check.
