As a registered umbrella body, Brass Bands England will endeavour to process DBS check applications quickly and without any fuss for bands.
This service is free of charge for volunteers of member bands, and a small administration charge will be made for applications received from non-member bands and other organisations.
It is very important that all bands use the DBS. We advise you to take a look at the procedures you have in place to see if they are up to date.
We advise that any members who work directly with young people agree to a DBS check. If you apply for some grants or apply for charitable status you will need to have your DBS checks in place.
