DBS Service

Community Leisure UK (CLUK) and the Welsh Sports Association (WSA) have formed a Strategic Alliance across areas of shared interest and benefit; one of these areas is safeguarding and a robust DBS checking service for sport & leisure.

As part of the new Strategic Alliance, the WSA is to provide CLUK members with access to its DBS service for sport & leisure, which is run through its trading arm, Vibrant Nation.  CLUK members will pay the rate equal to that offered to the WSA members, which currently stands at £4.50 plus VAT, with no set up fee for the online DBS service.
