If you are a KalliKids accredited children's activity provider, you can apply for an Enhanced DBS check through KalliKids for you or your team.
KalliKids and The Federation of Festivals, a KalliKids partner, will help you through the process and if you have any questions, take a look at the FAQs or contact the team.


Four simple steps

1.  Complete the request form below

2.  Complete the two forms posted to you

3.  Ask a professional to verify your documents

4.  Post your application



KalliKids does not charge you at all for a DBS application. The total cost of your Enhanced DBS will be £60. This charge is made up of:

  • DBS (Government) fee: £44
  • Federation of Festivals admin and form fee: £16.

KalliKids, like many organisations, accepts a DBS check as current if it is less than three years old. This means your DBS check will last for three years in most circumstances, making the cost £20 per year.

What is a DBS?

DBS stands for Disclosure and Barring Service and is a police check made by the DBS (a Government agency). Find out more.

Do I have to have a DBS to be KalliKids accredited?

No: KalliKids is about giving parents information to make their own choice. If you do have a DBS or CRB, KalliKids will show you as "DBS/CRB checked" if that check is dated within the past three years at accreditation and discloses no police incidents or only minor police incidents.

What happened to CRBs?
Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (IAS) merged into the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) in December 2012.
Is my CRB still valid?

CRB checks made prior to that date and less than three years old are still accepted by KalliKids as a valid CRB/DBS check.
