A DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) is an enhanced Police Check required for you to work in the care sector in England and Wales.

In order to start picking up shifts with Florence, we need to apply for a DBS on your behalf through our Organisation. We will apply for both Adults and Children Membership status for you so this won’t have to be added at a later date.

A payment of £55.60 is required in order to progress with your application, however, this will be reimbursed after you have completed your first shift with us.

To apply for a new DBS, please send a copy of Proof of Address (dated in the last 3 months) with the subject ‘DBS Request’ to [email protected] .

Once an application has been made from our side, you will receive an email with a link to your part of the application and for payment to be made.

DBSs can take up to 6 weeks for Florence to receive the results of a new DBS.

Once you have received the DBS, you have 28 days to put this on the Update Service.

If you have a conviction that you believe will be flagged on your DBS please click here for more information.

At this moment in time, a 'Covid' DBS is also available for the price of £15.60. This DBS is only valid for 1 year and cannot be put on the update service. This option will only be available until the Disclosure and Barring Service remove it, but currently, there is no timeframe given for this.

By submitting your application for a DBS you are confirming that you have the relevant experience in order to work with Florence. If this cannot be confirmed through satisfactory references you won’t be eligible for reimbursement.
