This document is designed to be used by members by passing it onto employers who are asking for a member to have or obtain an Enhanced DBS check in order to take up or apply for a role which may not require it. A recent survey of Equity members indicated that there was still widespread misunderstanding by employers and the public about when a check is required. Just because the role may involve contact with children, for example, it does not mean that a DBS check is required. If after approaching the employer with the document they still do not understand then refer them to Michael Day firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that the document has been checked for accuracy by Equity’s solicitors.
Also note that this is unrelated to the issue of the broadcasters (BBC, ITV, Pact etc) insisting on Basic Disclosure Certificates for Walk-ons and supporting artists for which there is separate guidance elsewhere on the Equity website.

The Live Entertainment Works! campaign has now launched. The aim of the campaign is to approach local venues asking them to display the poster supporting live entertainment and get across the message that the change in licensing law means that it is now easier to put on acts in venues with a capacity of 500 or below. For further information contact Mike Day by phone on 020 7670 0235 or email@example.com
