How to set up a DBS applicant using Whole Game System

Here is a very quick guide to setting up a DBS applicant on the Whole Game System for those who are unsure.

I am now set up as an FA verifier so I should be able to support the applications that are set up if you do not have a member of the committee yet trained as a Welfare Officer.


Once you have added in the official it will be up to them to access the whole game system and complete their end.

They can find the My DBS on the front page of their whole game page.

Once they have completed that there is a need for all the documents that they have been selected (3 documents in total) to be seen by either a club official or FA official, as the verifier will need the details on the documents for the application to be verified.

I have asked Hampshire FA when the next Welfare Officer Workshop is being held but have not yet had an answer – as soon as I am aware of a date I will circulate that to all club secretaries.

Good Practice will also be for all committee members to undertake the Committee Member Safeguarding training which can be found on the link below.

I would also suggest that any coaches or managers that are directly involved with any players U18 take the FA safeguarding course. The link is below.

The final step will be to ensure that all parents and players U18 are aware who the Welfare Officer is at your club, as well as who the Hampshire FA safeguarding officer is.
