Information on our safeguarding processes

Safeguarding children

As part of safeguarding procedures, where it is appropriate to their role, Action for Carers staff are checked for criminal convictions through the Disclosure and Barring (formerly Criminal Records Bureau) scheme.

ACS will not provide personal data or copies of DBS certificates to any individual or agency. However, we can supply certificate numbers upon request by calling 01483 302748; and these numbers can be verified with the DBS.

For Surrey Young Carers staff visiting children in schools, the organisation follows the guidance of OFSTED on ‘checking visiting staff’.
