Renew or apply for a chaperone licence

Child performance licensing and chaperones latest

Coronavirus (COVID-19): The safety of the children performing or in employment is paramount. To prevent the spread of COVID-19 we are following to the Government guidance. We are rigorously assessing applications for licences for children in entertainment, work permits and chaperones.


1. Complete your online training

Renewal and Application are the same. Please note: The process can take anything from  6 to 8 weeks so please ensure you apply in time.   

Complete the process below to apply or renew your licence at least 3 months before it expires. There is a charge to renew:

  • £35 for a volunteer chaperone
  • £75 for a professional chaperone

(A volunteer provides their service for free (apart from expenses) so their Enhanced DBS check is free of charge. The Professional receives payment for their service and therefore the Enhanced DBS will cost £44.00.

It is illegal to use your free of charge DBS certificate to earn any form of income.)
