First Aid Certificates and Disclosure and Barring Service checks

Wheelchair basketball Leaders  are not required to hold a valid first aid certificate however this is good practice. You may need to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service check; this can be completed through BWB. However if you are not required to have a DBS Check then it is good practice to complete a Self-Declaration Form.  For more information please visit the website: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/disclosure-and-barring-service
