Guide to completing a Disclosure

Child welfare is our number one priority and we expect all Kings Camps staff to share our commitment to safeguarding. All staff must therefore complete an enhanced disclosure check for the position. This is an essential part of the process, without which you will not be able to work and other staff may be given hours in your place until this is completed.

To get started, please click on the option below that’s relevant to you:

I have a current DBS certificate registered with the DBS Update Service

I need to apply for a new DBS check through The Kings Foundation

I am a Scottish Resident and I am a member of, or need to join the PVG Scheme with Disclosure Scotland


I have a current DBS certificate registered on the DBS Update Service

If you have a live, active registration with the Government DBS Update Service, great! We can perform an updated check online. To do so, we need:

Stage 1 – Confirm who you are (Verify your identity)

We have to know who you are in order to do a background check on you. As we have camps across the UK, we appreciate that not all staff can visit our Sheffield offices and so we instead offer an online service called Veri-fy. This service allows you to show proof of your ID to a local professional person in your own time and you can submit details of the meeting to us online.

How does it work?

Note:

Stage 2 – Post your original certificate and permission

Once your ID check has been submitted, send your original DBS certificate to us in the post (we recommend recorded delivery so it doesn’t get lost) to:

Contracting Team
Osborne House
47 Snaithing Lane
Sheffield
S10 3LF

You’ll need to include a short letter signed by you giving permission for one of our team to perform the update on your personal information.

We will then complete the updated check, save your details on file and return your certificate ASAP to the address on your Kings Recruit profile- and voila! you’re done.


I need to apply for a new DBS check through The Kings Foundation

Please follow the 3 stages below for a new disclosure application with Kings. All our DBS applications are processed by Disclosure Services and the cost is £53 which you will need to fund. You may also choose to sign up to the DBS Update Service (£13 annual subscription) so that your DBS check may be used with future employers. More information on the update service can be found at DBS-update-service. Kings will cover the cost of an initial DBS application for Voluntary, Site and Regional Management positions.

Stage 1 – Apply for a DBS Check

The process should take around 20 minutes. The application portal will time out after a few minutes of inactivity so you’ll need to have everything to hand. If you have difficulties with any part of the application, you can call Disclosure Services’ support line between 9am and 8pm on 01691 662255 or 07976 082099

Stage 3 – Pay for your Disclosure Check


I am a Scottish Resident and I am a member of, or need to join the PVG Scheme with Disclosure Scotland

Scotland follows the PVG Scheme for disclosure checks. This is established by the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007. When you undertake regulated work with children for the first time you need to join the PVG Scheme. Joining the PVG Scheme costs £61. If you have already obtained a Scheme Record from another organisation, you need to apply for a PVG scheme record update with us. This costs £21.

Stage 1 – Apply for a PVG Scheme Record Update

Please call 0114 263 2155 or email contractingteam@kingscamps.org to request your application form. Please state if you are applying for the first time or if you are applying for an update.

Please note we will post the form to the address listed on your Kings Recruit profile so you must notify us of any change.

When you have received your application form in the post please read the notes carefully and apply for your check. Please do so as efficiently as possible and post the form back to:

Contracting Team
Osborne House
