COVID-19


The current Coronavirus pandemic means there is an immense need to recruit and redeploy workers to our NHS Health Boards, Charities and Care Home Groups. COVID-19 is causing devastation around the world. At present we do not have the staff required to care for all in need during these uncertain times. We need additional workforce, and we need them now.

Recruitment must be done in a manner that guarantees the safeguarding and protection of the vulnerable. These are unprecedented times, and we must continue to recruit safely, ensuring the right people are caring for those in need. Sacrificing their wellbeing is not an option.

That is why we have used our expertise to introduce the Fast Track DBS Checking Service. This means workers can be checked and approved in just 24 hours, preserving precious time and enabling an army of workers to be ready for action, right away.

The DBS have acted quickly to respond to the demands created by COVID-19, including the ability to allow an interim solution to manage ID checking online, rather than face to face. In addition, any COVID-19 related DBS applications will be escalated and prioritised, to ensure swift responses as to whether an individual is listed on either the ADULT or CHILD barred lists. Applications will also all be treated as 'voluntary', this removing DBS processing fees.

To facilitate these checks, our COVID-19 Safeguarding Response Team is ready and available to support you with safeguarding. This team has been created especially by CBS/Trivex in direct response to the surge in demand for the screening of workers needing to support or take the front line. We are committed to seeing the right people in action, working together to beat this.

Please note, this is a unique COVID-19 team, and is not looking to replace current supplier. Our team of COVID-19 safeguarding experts are looking to support, resolve and deliver in the Coronavirus crisis.
