As part of the application you will be required to select 3 forms of ID from a list of options, which you will then need to take with you to have verified in a face-to-face meeting with a verifier, this can be the person who initiated your application or another verifier you have found using the find a verifier tool. 

One important advisory is to make sure your application is made in your full, legal name as it appears on your ID documents. If not, the full and proper checks may not be performed and your application may be invalid.

COVID-19: Due to the current situation access to the DBS application system for ID verification has been restricted to the top levels of access only. 

ID verification will now be actioned via a video call (e.g. Zoom, Skype, Whatsapp) as opposed to the standard Face to Face Meeting. 

The following people will be able to verify your documents:

Alex Jopling
Julen Beer
Matthew Theedom
James May
Claire Colman
John Ingham Use find a verifier 
Nick Evanson Use find a verifier 
Nigel Piddock  Use find a verifier 

Once you have had your documents verified your application will be dispatched to the DBS (for non-volunteers, there is one extra step involving payment before the application gets dispatched). Then, it is just a case of waiting for your certificate to arrive in the post.

Once you have received the certificate, the Safeguarding team at Lord's may request for you to post it to them for further review, but only if there is content on it (a previous conviction or caution). If the certificate is clear, the process is complete and you do not need to do anything else.
