13.Important Information Disclosure and Barring Service

Whilst a DBS check is compulsory in most care settings, it is not compulsory for people who are in receipt of Direct Payment/Individualised Budgets. (If you are not familiar with the terms Direct Payments/Individualised Budgets, these are payments made by the Local Authority to disabled people and families of disabled children in lieu of traditional care services. The disabled person or family of a disabled child then use this money to employ their own Personal Assistants with the support of Choices and Rights, and Hull CVS who provide the payroll service).
If you already have a DBS disclosure, it will be helpful if you can bring this with you when you are invited to interview for specific posts. If you do not have a current DBS disclosure Choices and Rights will arrange for one to be completed if requested by a disabled person/family of a disabled child.
Everybody recruited to any individual post, regardless of their race, ethnic or national origin, colour or nationality will be expected to provide evidence that they are able to work in the UK. Some people are automatically entitled to work in the UK. Others may have restrictions on how long they can stay, whether they can work or the type of work they can do.
We hope that this is of assistance to you, however if you need more information or have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact the team at anytime on 01482878778 or via email esw@choicesandrights.org.uk.
