There have been recent changes to The FA’s DBS (formerly CRB) application process to bring the process inline with new Government requirements.

  • Paper Applications – the cost of these is now 20.00 – forms should be requested from Sue Gifford at ESFA (01785 785970) – the completed forms and documents will still need to be returned to Martin Duffield for verification
  • The ESFA can now offer an Online application process at a cost of 10.00. Associations wishing to use the online application process should email their request to martin.duffield@schoolsfa.com - the guidelines/links will be emailed to them.

Please note:

  • The original documents will still have to be forwarded to Martin Duffield to complete the verification process
  • Payment has to be made online as part of the application process


Further information will be circulated to Associations regarding any procedures that will allow the portability of a DBS once the ESFA is informed of any proposals by The FA
