Queen's Crescent Community Association (QCCA) is an official Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) centre. We can process DBS checks for other organisations, on a one-off basis or as a monthly retained service. We also provide training for organisations to set up their own internal DBS service, so that a member of staff becomes a designated ID checker.
Making a DBS application through QCCA is a very simple process:
Contact us on 020 7267 6635 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange the application. (Applications are processed Thursdays between 10am - 5:30pm unless under special circumstances.)
The applicant comes to QCCA to complete the application form. You'll need to provide proof of identity (passport, driving license, birth certificate or marriage certificate) and two proof of address (bank statement, utility bill or any document listing a financial history, no more than three months from date of issue)
A member of QCCA’s team will go through the application with them and send it off to be processed.
Once processed, a certificate will be sent to the applicant’s home address. Processing may take between 3-6 weeks.
The cost is £54 for a paid employee (enhanced check) and £10 for a volunteer.
