To re-register your chaperone licence through us, you must live in a Surrey County Council Borough.
A payment of £20 is required. This is to cover the cost of the three online training courses which you must complete, and an administration fee. The payment must be made on completion of this form.

I apply to Surrey County Council for approval as Chaperone for children in entertainment under the Children & Young Persons Act 1963 and the Children (Performances and Activities)(England) Regulations 2014. I consent to confidential routine enquiries being carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service and of Surrey County Council Social Care Records. I understand that I will be required to complete three online training courses on Working Together to Safeguard Children Refresher for Foster Carers and Children's Chaperone Service, Awareness of Child Sexual Exploitation and on Supporting and Protecting Children in Entertainment, before I will become re-registered. *

Has your existing chaperone licence expired? (If you are unsure please contact us on 01483 517838 to check) *
If your chaperone licence has been expired for more than 12 months, we require you to apply as a new chaperone and you should not complete this form. Please go to to complete the new chaperone application form.
If your licence has lapsed for 6 months or more we require you to provide two referees so that we can apply for further references for you.
If your licence has been expired 0-5 months, then you do not need to provide references and can skip ahead to the DBS declaration.
Please name two referees (not family members/partners/partners family) who have known you for more than 2 years. They must know of your experience of looking after children (observed you looking after children) and your suitability to act as a chaperone. They must NOT know you solely in connection with your dancing school or amateur dramatic organisation. Please select if you agree to us contacting them on your behalf.
Disclosure and Barring Service Checks
All chaperones who have been paid on any occasion, other than out of pocket expenses, cannot be classed as a 'volunteer'. We must therefore make a professional DBS check for you, which will incur an additional charge of £44 £25 administration fee, i.e. an extra £69. This will be collected when you present your documents to the Child Employment team. Please confirm below whether or not you have been paid as a chaperone, other than out of pocket expenses.
Have you been employed professionally as a chaperone, receiving payment other than expenses? *
You will need to make an appointment with a member of the Child Employment team to present your 3 identity documents for the DBS check and your online training certificates. We will send you the DBS Information and Accepted Document list for you to see what identity documents we accept. Copies of your documents are not acceptable, we must see the originals. Please contact us on 01483 517838 if you have any queries.
Please make a payment of £20 now to cover the online training and administration charge. Once payment has been made, the Child Employment Team will get in touch by email to provide the information and links to the online training courses. If you have any queries you can contact us on 01483 517838 or
