DBS Continuation Sheets

If it is not possible to record all the required information on the DBS Application Form, a 'continuation sheet' should be submitted together with the form.


  • Use a continuation sheet to tell us about additional names, including the period that the name was used entering the 'from' and 'to' dates in MM/YYYY format. Both the forename(s) and surname(s) must be provided.
  • Use a continuation sheet to tell us about any additional address history, entering the 'from' and 'to' periods in MM/YYYY format. You should include overseas addresses where necessary.
  • If required, you may submit more than one continuation sheet.
  • Use black ink and write clearly in BLOCK CAPITALS only.
  • You must complete all fields marked in yellow.
  • Insert any continuation sheets between the pages of the relevant application form, ready for sending to the CRB, to ensure all the information is kept together.


  • DON'T try to write or squeeze information in the spaces between fields on the application form.
  • DON'T staple the continuation sheet to the application form.
  • DON'T send in originals or copies of the documents recorded on the continuation sheet.
  • DON'T send in any additional information, correspondence, or documentation that is not required by the DBS.

Please note

Failure to comply with any of the above will result in the application form being returned for correct completion and will delay your application.
