Can you organise a DBS for my babysitter?

We offer DBS checks – with the consent of the named individual.

Why is this necessary

Checking that the person you are going to leave your child with is suitable to work with children must be an essential element of your recruitment process. The Disclosure and Barring Check helps employers make safer recruitment decisions.

Why choose Riverside Cares

We are a dedicated team who are here to support you during the application process, by phone or email. Our office team are available Monday to Friday 9.30 to 4.00 when we can answer your emails and phone calls. Riverside Cares has more than 32 years of experience in Early Years supply, training and education. We are very familiar with the DBS process.

Want your own Enhanced DBS check carried out

If you would like a check carried out for your personal use we can carry out a check on your behalf. Nannies, babysitters, applying for an Ofsted Registration and carers for the elderly and those who would like to give peace of mind to employers and potential employers can apply in their own right with Riverside Cares. You will also need to have evidence that they are permitted to work in the UK in line with government guidelines.

If you are an employer

Riverside Cares will confirm to you when the Disclosure and Barring Certificate has been issued to your Nanny, who will then be in a position to show you the certificate. Please note: To process a DBS check and references we will require your name and contact details and those of your Nanny and confirmation of your Nanny’s permission to carry out the check, as we will not be able to carry out the check without the consent of the person being checked. The person will also need to have evidence that they are permitted to work in the UK.
