DBS Barred List – Adult and Children

If you have been cautioned or convicted for a criminal offence you may receive a letter from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) stating that they have “the intention of including you on the Barred List”.

What this letter means is that the DBS intend to place you on a list of people who can not work with children and/or vulnerable adults.

Certain offences  automatically bar people from working with children or adults and there is no right to make representations.

For certain offences however you are able to make representations so that you are not included on the child and/or adult barred list. For more information on what regulated activity with children is, please visit here: Regulated Activity with Children

Representations and the Barred List

You will need to submit your representations to the DBS to avoid automatic inclusion on the DBS barred list within 8 weeks from receipt of the letter notifying you of the intention to include you on the barred list. Your representations will need to set out your mitigation and legal reasons as to why you believe you should not be placed on the DBS barred lists.

We have represented may cases before the DBS, including challenging inclusion on the children and/or adult barred list.

If you have already had your own representations rejected by the DBS, we will be able to appeal your case to the Upper Tribunal.

If you have been included on the barred list, but think it is unfair, we have experience in applying for people to be taken off the DBS barred lists.

Please get in touch to discuss your case.
