This year we have been running a successful and well received programme of free events. These let you know about making safeguarding referrals to the DBS and are targeted to those who have a responsibility for removing individuals from regulated activity posts where harm has, or may, occur.

Feedback shows that delegates have a better understanding of legislative requirements after attending an event.

An event will last about three hours, allowing for questions and the opportunity to comment. Topics covered include:

  • background to the DBS and legislative changes
  • the statutory functions of the DBS
  • referral responsibilities and guidance
  • regulated activity, relevant conduct and risk of harm definitions
  • the DBS barring decision making processes and considerations
