DBS Requirements

Network members, despite being over the age of 18, are not required to hold a DBS if they are taking part in activities as youth member, i.e. having no responsibility for young people. This includes camping as a youth member.

The moment they take a position of responsibility over a younger section they must complete a DBS and for that another role must be added, occasional helper or sectional assistant.

Executive members must also complete a DBS, which is possible using the database.

If you have any questions, please ask.
