What levels of DBS check do we offer?

Care Check provide three levels of DBS checks and each level corresponds with the type of job role the applicant will fulfil.


An Enhanced DBS check is available for people working in roles that require frequent contact with children or vulnerable adults and who will be working within specified settings such as care homes, hospitals and schools. An enhanced DBS check will show all unspent and spent criminal convictions, warnings and reprimands and will not only be checked against the Police National Computer (PNC), but it will be matched against the adult and children’s barred lists where applicable.

If an application is matched against the child barred list, a list 99 check will be completed. A list 99 check details names of all people who have been barred or restricted from working with children by The Department for Education. The application will undergo local police force checks and, in certain circumstances, the chief operating officer for the local police force may decide to disclose information regarding an applicant if they feel it is necessary for the job role they have applied for. This sometimes happens when an individual had previously been investigated for a crime and, due to the nature of the incident, the information is shared to make the employer aware of the situation.


Standard level checks are for persons working within certain regulated positions such as financial, legal and gaming. This level DBS covers checks for the PNC as well as disclosing any unspent or spent convictions if applicable.


A Basic level check is available to any persons for any purpose – in fact you do not need a specific job offer to obtain a basic check as anyone can apply. The Basic check covers matches against the PNC, but will only show unspent convictions. If a conviction becomes spent any time after a certificate has been issued, this will not be disclosed.
