This page has been created to provide our Chaperones and Helpers with all the information they need in one place, hopefully making life a little easier! Scroll down for useful documents and links as well as more information about how to apply for an enhanced DBS and how to renew your license.

How to Become a Volunteer Chaperone

To be a Chaperone you need 2 pieces of documentation: an Enhanced DBS Certificate and a Photographic Chaperone License.

These documents are provided by the local authority in which you live, for example Bradford Council or The Leeds City Council.  

Firstly you need to get in touch with the Child Employment and Entertainment Licensing team for the authority in which you live.  They will then direct you to the appropriate documents and requirements.  The process can take up to 3 months so start early! 

Authority Contact Details

Renewing Your Chaperone License

Chaperone License's need to be renewed every 3 years and as long as you do not let your license go out of date you shouldn't need to re-apply for an Enhanced DBS Check. 

It's best to get in touch a month or two prior to your renewal date to make sure it all goes smoothly.

If your license has been issued by Bradford Council then to renew your license simply email the Child Employment and Entertainment Licensing at cee@bradford.gov.uk and they will send you the appropriate forms and requirements.  

For Leeds City Council use the online form.   Which can be found at the bottom of this page: Leeds Chaperone and Child Licenses

For North Yorkshire County Council contact them at safeguardingunit@northyorks.gov.uk or phone 01609533080
