The licence is free of charge but you must pay for your DBS check if you need one.

After you apply

Once we have received your application form, have evidence of your DBS check, and you have completed the Safeguarding & Child Protection training, we will invite you to interview to assess your suitability to act as a chaperone.  

If successful, your chaperone licence will be issued for one year. To renew your licence you will need to complete an annual renewal declaration form.
