Volunteer Screening

DHS Screening


DHS Screening checks are mandatory for all coaches and will be renewed every three years.  It is the responsibility of each club to ensure that all of their coaches have clearances or have submitted an application to DHS no later than one week prior to the commencement of the season.  Non-compliance will result in the coach being banned from coaching until his/her application notification or expirey date of the check has been received by E&DJSA.  E&DJSA will fine any clubs that do not comply.

Question: Why do DHS Screening volunteers have to return the authorised application form to the organisation for endorsement?


Answer: The DHS Screening Check authorisation should remain secure within an organisation to prevent illegitimate usage. The DHS Screening must be endorsed after the applicant has had their application and identification authorised..

Endorsement of the application form provides a declaration that the applicant named

on the form is an unpaid volunteer and so there is no fee.
