If you are taking part in a volunteering opportunity offered through the Volunteering Department, we can offer you a free DBS check! 

Applying is very straight forward, but you MUST book an appointment in advance.


How to apply:

Step 1 - email The Volunteering Department on su-volunteering@leicester.ac.uk. You will be given a link to the DBS website if your volunteer activities are approved by us.

Step 2 - Complete the online section of this application on your own. 

Step 3 - Once completed, someone will contact you to arrange a face to face meeting (to occur Tuesday's and Thursday's 10am-2pm) 

In this face to face meeting, we will require 3 forms of ID in order to complete your DBS application.  An example of these are:

  • Passport
