DBS Checks

Ross-on-Wye Community Development Trust is a Disclosure & Barring Service provider and can process Enhanced DBS checks for other organisations.

We offer FREE DBS checks for volunteers for Ross voluntary groups who are full CDT members (membership fee £24 / year). We also offer employee checks for Ross groups @ £50 per application.


Read our Applicant Guidance before requesting a check for one of your volunteers or employees. If you are unsure what type of check is needed we can advise: just email dbs-check@rosscdt.org.uk.

Note that checks must be requested by a group: we cannot accept applications made by individuals.


Let the volunteer or member of staff know that you are requesting a check, then fill in the form at: http://bit.ly/RossCDT-DBS.


Download the Application Pack and email it to the applicant. If you are holding a stock of Ross CDT DBS forms, pass one to your volunteer/employee (if not we will post them one). If the application is for an employee we will invoice your group for the fee.


Our team will contact the applicant to arrange a meeting for the form and documents to be checked.


After the check the form will be forwarded to the DBS. It can take up to 6 weeks for a Certificate to be issued. This will be sent directly to the applicant.
