Coaches, Officials and Athletics Volunteers - Licence and Safeguarding Check


 Changes to Government legislation have led to changes in the area of safeguarding checks across all sports. It is important that clubs and people such as coaches and officials who require a DBS (formerly a CRB) check are aware of these changes.


Changes to the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 mean that from the 17th June 2013 the Disclosure and Barring Service will only issue one certificate which will be sent to the applicant.


This change is important as it means that that UKA no longer receives a copy of your DBS certificate.  This means that you, should you wish to proceed, need to send your DBS certificate to UKA so they can see it and take the next steps in the process.


More information is available via the England Athletics website:
