Child Protection Guidance

The BGA publishes its Child Protection guidance here

That guidance has been updated to include new detail on how to apply for a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) certificate. The key change from earlier guidance is that following expert advice we have moved away from recommending a single provider and instead we have supplied details of the Governments list of ‘responsible organisations’ so that clubs can choose which provider they wish to use. Guidance on the DBS application process and how to obtain BGA advice is available here
