Our Lancashire Volunteer DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) scheme
Our Lancashire is the Lancashire-wide Social Action network to bring groups and communities together to make Lancashire a greater place to live, work and play.
Our Lancashire is working in partnership with Burnley Pendle and Rossendale Council for Voluntary Services (BPRVS) to deliver Free DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checks for volunteers that support voluntary organisations working with vulnerable groups/people across Lancashire.
Voluntary Groups and organisations that sign up and post their Group on to the Our Lancashire website will be eligible for up to 6 free DBS checks for their volunteers (not paid staff) if their turnover is under £150,000 and they qualify for a DBS check.
BPRCVS will provide this service across pan-Lancashire.
This initiative will ensure we continue to safeguard the most vulnerable people in our communities.
