DBS checks to remain free for volunteers

Criminal records checks will continue to be free for volunteers, the government has confirmed.

The new ‘Update Service’ due to go live this spring means that once a volunteer has a DBS check they should not need to undergo a new check every time they start a new volunteering opportunity. Instead, the system will allow an organisation to check online to see whether the volunteer’s circumstances have changed since their first check.
