Police Background Check for UK residents

In order to ensure the safety of the children we are working to support around the world, all Love Volunteers who choose to join us on one of our wonderful Childcare & Development, Teaching & Education, Women's Empowerment or Medical Programs are required to provide a criminal background check prior to their arrival at their project site. 

As our volunteers come from all over the world, there is not one single process for applying for a criminal background check that will work for all. Among other things, it will be determined by the local regulations and law enforcement systems of you own country of residence. However, a good place to start is by contacting your local police station to inquire what the process is in your country. 

For most UK residents a simple Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check will be sufficient and is detailed on this website: https://www.gov.uk/request-copy-criminal-record
