1st December saw the launch of a new Non-Departmental Public Body called the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). The DBS unites the functions of the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Safeguarding Authority (ISA).

The Chairman of the DBS Board is Bill Griffiths, who is the former Chair of the Forensic Sciences Service. He said of his appointment:

"The creation of the Disclosure and Barring Service brings together the skills, experience and expertise of staff from the CRB and ISA. It is a very exciting time and while there are challenges ahead, the legislative changes introduced last September and those planned for 2013 will provide the DBS with the platform to further improve the disclosure and barring elements of our work. I very much look forward to working with the DBS Board and colleagues as we further develop the organisation to build upon the effective, robust and proportionate safeguarding and barring arrangements currently in place."

What people are saying about ENS

I feel I would like to give a positive review on working for ENS in any care capacity. I joined at the start of December 2015 and have been offered enough work to fit around my own needs and other commitments. The work has been varied and I received good information prior to the visit. The excellent dedicated back office support staff and they clearly understand their clients’ needs which are aligned to the qualities of the Support Workers, this helps builds the relationship.

While there is a need for help at short notice to meet the company needs I have been further impressed to have good notice of most of the work intended. My role has been largely Community Support but I have worked with our Residential team and clearly there is plentiful work again with helpful support.

In my dealings with the company I have found the ENS team to be helpful and approachable and need to reiterate how impressed I have been. Thank you to all involved.


A big thank you to you and all of the booking team that have put up with me over the months and helped me get an amazing full time job, Thank you :)
