Disclosure and Barring Services

If you are a leader of a toddler group or a regular volunteer at one NAPI would recommend that you undergo a Disclosure and Barring check.
The responsibility for children at a Parent and Toddler Group always remains with the parent.
Many venues will insist on DBS checks before allowing a group to run from their premises.
Checks may be carried out by the host organisation, if this is not the case then Group Leaders can register their group with an organisation called Caring Hands who will carry out the check for a administration charge.
The detail of the organisation are:
