For safeguarding reasons, all Code Club volunteers must complete a background check before starting at a club.

During volunteer registration, you will be notified about the respective options available for background checks in England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Our safeguarding page will give you further information.

Volunteers in England and Wales who request a DBS check during registration will receive an email from Code Club with further details once their background check application has been submitted.

Please let us know at if you have any questions or concerns about background checks.
