Yes the government withdraw the subsidy for the dbs checks so any new ones have to be paid for.

A member has been really struggling with her child's DBS because her child doesn't have a passport :(

She has been told that her child is not a suitable person and they might shut her down - because she can't provide enough of the other ID for a 16 year old - that's why I suggested it I wasn't in any way being discriminatory xx

It was a joke Sarah and it was aimed at Ofsted not you :) and if they did that to me I would be thinking of taking legal action because that is ridiculous !

And where did the National Insurance number option disappear to they really havent thought about options for children turning 16 have they ! and I apologise for making a joke as this has abviously been a stressful situation for the member that is struggling x

Blimey £52!! I just had a letter from Ofsted saying that there'll be a "small" charge... my ds is 16 soon so I'll have to pay this too I expect.

I'm really annoyed as I sent a dbs in for my other half as he was in the process of moving in, and ofsted didn't want to have him checked even though I said to them that he was staying here overnight roughly half the time. They weren't interested until he was actually officially living here. And he officially moved in 1 July. Grrrr :mad:

it is bonkers that a birth certficate and NI number are not enough proof of idea. passports cost a fortune so unless you travel there is no point in having one - especially a child's - they need renewing every 5 years :panic:

i just had to pay £55 for my dbs at uni for my teacher training post- despite the school who wil be employing me ALSO doing a separate DBS. I paid last month. drove to uni on wed - my NI bill was 4 months old - not enough proof i was told. I drive back again yesterday with something else - to be told they changed their mind a few months ago and for the training scheme I am doing no longer requires a separate uni DBS :angry:

I had to have driving licence, passport, birth certificate OR utility bill or HMRC docs less than 3 months old. How will a child have any sort of utility bill. What about a child benefit statement hon, with your son's name on it??
