Fostering agencies or the Council usually carry out Enhanced DBS/ CRB checks for foster carers and any other adult members of a potential fostering household.
Anybody caring for, training, supervising or being in sole charge of a child in foster care on a regular basis would be eligible for an Enhanced DBS Check.
As part of the prospective carers approval process, the fostering agency will seek to identify any individuals who may play a significant role in providing support for those carers i.e. back up carers or regular babysitters.
It may be appropriate for a DBS check to be carried out on these individuals also, however the fostering provider would need to be aware of such arrangements to approve and request the checks.
