DBS Checks

The Licensing team no longer process DBS applications. We have entered into a partnership arrangement with Personnel Checks, who will be undertaking this service on our behalf.

The DBS fee is no longer included in the cost of the licence and is now payable direct to Personnel Checks along with an administration charge. Payment can be made by card by calling Personnel Checks on 01254 355665 or in person at their offices in Blackburn.

Further details can be found in the DBS check/application process (PDF 83Kb)
