Charging for Vetting and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Checks

We have updated 3.2g Vetting and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Checks to better explain that there are costs involved with all DBS checks, including those for volunteers such as homestay hosts.  We hope that this gives greater clarity to the arrangements in the DfE document Keeping Children Safe in Education 2018.
