NB: Current legislation does not allow parents to get a DBS check on those that they employ directly. However, if an agency has supplied a nanny, the agency can have them DBS checked.

People employing nannies will be entitled to check the applicant’s status under the new vetting service. The individual must have already applied to be vetted.

For membership of Voice, nannies are required to have an Enhanced DBS Disclosure
