How to get a DBS

Young Lancashire charges its Members a small fee to process the checks (currently £10 per check) plus any DBS fee which may apply. Currently the DBS fee for an enhanced level check is free for volunteers, and £44 for paid staff. All Members can access this service once our DBS registration form has been completed. To access our DBS checking service your group needs to become a member (visit: how to become a member) and complete our DBS Agreement Form.

We have three levels of membership for youth groups who wish to join our Network and we offer free processing of DBS checks for Hub and Partner Members as detailed below:


  • Network Members can access the checks on a pay as you go basis,
  • Hub Members receive an allocation of free processing for five checks, and,
  • Partner Members receive an allocation of free processing for ten checks.
