DBS Check Services

The Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) was formed in December 2012 following a merger of the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).  The primary role of the DBS is to enable safe recruitment and prevent unsuitable people working with vulnerable groups including children and young people.

MY Trust is an umbrella body for the DBS and can now undertake DBS checks directly for all organisations and individuals requiring the service.

Getting started:

If you are new to using this service, the first step is to set you up as a client. You are required to complete a Client Registration Agreement form and sign a General Governing Principles Code of Practice document before we can process checks. We charge a one-off set up fee. 

Set up fee:


Once we have you set up we can send you DBS application forms for completion by your volunteers and paid staff. Volunteer checks attract an administration fee only. Paid staff attract a full checking charge and administration fees. Details of all fees or DBS checks are as follows:

(Unpaid)  Volunteer Checks

£12.00 Admin fee per check

(Paid) Staff Checks

£59.00 per check 

All DBS applicants must also have their ID verified. We provide ID checker training for all clients as this is the most cost effective way of processing applications. We can, however provide ID checking services. The fee structure for ID checks is as follows:

Our DBS Services is managed by our Admin and Project Support Officer - Charlotte Moffatt

Young Kent - Youth Support Pack

MY Trust sadly no longer deliver the Young Kent Affiliation Service.  This service provided support to youth clubs across Kent and Medway but due to lack of funding stopped running the service in April 2019.

If you are thinking about setting up a club or are an existing club that needs some advice you may be able to find some useful information in our club pack.  We will no longer be updating this pack, so anything related to legal requirements should be double checked.


Please note all youth clubs can become members of UKYouth for no charge. UK Youth is a national umbrella organisation providing support to its network of youth clubs and organisations.

Thank you.
