Lists maintained by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) of individuals who are unsuitable to work with children or vulnerable adults.

Plain English definition
Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) Jargon Buster

An official list of people who are unsuitable to work or volunteer with children or with adults who may be at risk of harm or abuse, because of their past record. If you employ someone regularly to provide personal care, you should expect them to have completed a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, which will show whether they are on the barred list or not.
