Welsh Fencing (WF) follows the BFA Policy (https://www.britishfencing.com/welfare-zone/criminal-records-check/) on DBS Registration.
All Coaches, Welfare Officers, as well as any Volunteers having responsibility for under 18’s and/or vulnerable adults, are required to have a certificate confirming that a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check has been carried out. The certificate is valid for three years.
Any Club Official concerned about the DBS status of any Coach, other Official, or Volunteer that they have engaged, should ask to see their current DBS certificate.
