DISCLOSURE CHECKS (DBS)

DBS - Kent Coast Volunteering

Any role for adults in Scouting requires a disclosure check from the Disclosure and Barring Service (previously CRB). Copies of the forms are available at the Scout Hut or can be downloaded below.

The Scout Association has an electronic system for processing appointments and disclosure checks. The following steps will happen in order to complete the DBS.

  1. You wish to become a Occasional Helper, Parent Helper or attend an Overnight event.
  2. Download and complete the IDENTITY CHECKING FORM (BELOW).
  3. Hand this Form along with the required I.D to a Leader or Group Scout Leader for checking.
  4. Wait for the DBS process to start.
  5. Email received with details of how to log-in into the Scouts DBS system called ‘Atlantic Data’ to confirm your I.D – All I.D presented, National Insurance Number and all previous addresses are required at the time of Log-in.
  6. Wait for Email confirmation of approval – The Scout Group will also be told.
  7. Start attending as a helper.
