DBS Checks for WYCE Volunteers
If you’ve applied to WYCE for a place on our Volunteer Programme but don’t have an Enhanced DBS Certificate, don’t worry, you can apply through us for only £15 (Plus postage costs of £6.45 depending on the size of your documents). However, you must apply for this as soon as you have booked your stay – they can take several weeks to come through.
Please make your payment and send us - at the address below - 3 documents, of which at least 1 must be from group 1. If you can’t provide anything from Group 1, please contact us. Once we’ve received your payment and documents, you’ll be sent a link and password by Personnel Checks for you to complete an online form using their secure system, and we’ll verify your documents and return them to you by Registered Post. You’ll be sent your certificate in the post a couple of weeks later. You may need to send this to us.
