DBS Checks

Support and guidance to complete DBS checks

As part of our safeguarding children strategy, The FA requires those working in eligible roles with children and young people to pass a criminal records check. This is in line with legislation and government guidance and is standard practice.

We provide the framework and guidance for Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks in football and the leagues and clubs then have to implement this to ensure that those who are required to have checks done, do so.

You can find tutorial videos and downloads for guidance below.
