Contrary to popular belief not everyone can get a DBS check or request someone else has a DBS check – you can see our full article on this here. It has to be someone who is employed in a job which includes using this information, as part of an appropriate range of pre-recruitment checks, someone who is making a decision about that individuals suitability for the role they’ve applied for.
You’re the Boss has liaised with DBS over this issue, by providing a register of YtB Accredited Carers who as part of their suitability check for accreditation have an enhanced DBS check, we are able to provide this service.
YtB Accredited status is only for people who are offering a care service that includes what is referred to as “Regulated Activity” including personal care (see here for a full explanation of this term or for Premium Subscribers click here for our article)
You should be aware that we will require you to apply for an enhanced DBS check. This will check as to whether you have a criminal record or are on any banned list. We will not receive any details as a result of this application but it is a requirement of entry on to the register that you have a clear certificate as a result of this application. Please see our Safeguarding policy.

You’re the Boss reserves the right to ask for further evidence of your compliance with the criteria if it has any reason to doubt that any statements you make are true.
Entry on the Register does not guarantee you any employment. It only indicates that you are a Paid Carer who could be considered by people in need of care or those arranging care for them. Anyone looking to employ or contract with you will need to make their own decision and take references in order to satisfy themselves that you have the skills and expertise which are going to be able to meet their needs.
From time to time You’re the Boss may become privy to information or allegations concerning a Paid Carer that leads to their suspension or removal from the Register. We will always inform you of the reasons for that, and what will happen next. We may also need to initiate a referral to DBS if we believe that since the issue of the DBS Certificate you have committed a criminal offence.
Otherwise your place on the Register will remain for 2 years, unless you ask for it to be withdrawn. If you have subscribed to the DBS Update Service then you will need to give your permission for us to inspect the update if you wish to remain on the Register (and there will likely be a small additional charge). Alternatively, you will need to request a new DBS check in order to continue.
