If yes, we will be able to accept these updated DBSs, so please email julie@etc-inter.net with a copy of each certificate showing the date, certificate number and that each of you give our Homestay Inspector, Julie Hugo, permission to view it?

If you do not have DBS certificates, and you and those aged 16+ in your homestay want to host our juniors, please confirm that you, and the other homestay members aged 16+ are interested in applying for a DBS certificate?

You will each need to provide 3 types of ID for this i.e. passport, driving licence, council tax bill (or bank statement) – we need to see originals of these documents, so will give you the DBS forms to complete when we visit you and take copies of the said identification documents. If they are not available for copying during the visit, you will have to bring these in to ETC to be copied for our records, in order to complete the DBS applications.
