How to apply for a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) enhanced check
A Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) enhanced check is mandatory for all coaches taking an England Squash Level 1, 2 or 3 course and costs around £18. This is the highest level of check available to anyone involved in regularly caring for, training, supervising or being in sole charge of children or vulnerable adults. Check out our DBS FAQs for more info.
1) Apply online
Apply online at GBG Online Disclosures which takes around five minutes to complete. You'll need to provide details of the identifications you own including your National Insurance number, a valid driving license, passport or national ID card.
In the first step, you'll need to provide the England Squash PIN which is 102179. In the second step, you'll be asked for the organisation's secret word which is Z4LQX.
2) Verify your documents
During the application process, you'll need to have your ID documents verified. You can either contact someone from England Squash from the contacts listed in the verification process, who you can arrange to meet in person. Alternatively, you can take your documents to the Post Office along with a photocopy of each document. They will stamp and sign copies of your documents along with a receipt.
3) Send your application documents to us
Next send your completed application documents to us: Coaching Department, England Squash, National Squash Centre, Rowsley Street, M11 3FF. We'll then send the application form to GB Group.
4) Next steps
Once the GB Group has received your verified documents, they will contact you to request payment. Upon receipt of payment, they will begin the DBS search which can take up to 60 days, after which you will receive your DBS disclosure in the post. You'll then need to send this to us so we can update your record of achievement.
