SELF EMPLOYED OR A SOLE TRADER?
If you are looking for a DBS Check the only one available to you if you are one of the above is a BASIC CHECK from Disclosure Scotland or the DBS .
We are aware that a large number of people become self-employed and set up their own business as a Sole Trader working with Children or Adults providing all types of support and guidance. But the government has decided that if you are one of these Individuals you are not allowed to obtain an Enhanced or Standard DBS Check.
A basic level disclosure details all criminal information considered as non-spent under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, or will state that there are no such convictions present.
For information on obtaining a Basic check you can contact,
