Everyone aged 16 years or over who undertakes any unsupervised role in football with children needs a DBS. These roles could be managing, training, coaching, refereeing or supervising. They also include giving advice or guidance on well-being, caring for children or driving a vehicle solely for children on behalf of a club or organisation. By children, we mean anyone under 18. Anyone performing these roles MUST obtain an FA Enhanced DBS Check.
