  1. Complete a Clergy Confidential Declaration Form  (Word or PDF) ensuring the signature is a physical / wet ink or image of your signature.
  2. Complete an ID Verification and Justification Form (PDF). For clergy already within the Diocese of Derby, your parish safeguarding officer, churchwardens, another member of clergy, the area dean, deanery administrator will need to see three forms of identity, one should bear a recent photograph, one must confirm your date of birth, and at least one must confirm your current address. For clergy New to the diocese please have this countersigned by a senior member of clergy from your current diocese. Notes and an example ID form can be downloaded and also a list of acceptable ID documents.
  3. email the forms to judie.fogarty@derby.anglican.org and post the originals to Judie Fogarty, Derby Church House, 1 Full Street, Derby, DE1 3DR.
  4. You will be emailed a unique user ID number and a link to create your online application using that user ID number.
  5. Use the link and user ID to access the application form and complete the step by step application instructions. We are often asked why the paper / electronic forms are needed - we have to have these to verify the online application you make.
  6. Your certificate will be posted directly to you. Keep your certificate in a safe place as it is a legal document and you may be asked for it to show you are entitled to work with children or vulnerable adults.
  7. The DST will receive a notification of your DBS certificate and will inform the Bishop's Office, and as appropriate the parish safeguarding officer of your parish and the appropriate departments within the diocese.

If there are any concerns shown on your certificate, a member of the DST will contact you to discuss what should happen next.
