New DBS Service Provider for the Baptist Union of Great Britain
Following a detailed review of our DBS checking requirements, the Baptist Union will be moving to a new DBS checking partner from 1 November 2015. Due Diligence Checking Ltd (DDC) are based in Syston, near Leicester and provide DBS checks for more than 7,000 organisations, including many charities and faith based organisations.
We will be providing more information for churches and verifiers in September, and DDC will contact the main verifier at each church, college and association directly to introduce themselves and to set up access arrangements to the DDC system. DDC will handle both online and paper applications on our behalf, and we look forward to working with them.
Our current arrangements with the Churches’ Agency for Safeguarding (CAS) will continue until 30 October 2015, and we are grateful to them for their support to Baptist churches across England and Wales over the last eight years.
