Aaron’s Department: Your DBS Check Umbrella Body

Are you a business that needs to conduct DBS checks on your employees or volunteers? If so, you need an experienced and reliable DBS check Umbrella Body, whose admin fees don’t break the bank!

Aaron’s Department is the perfect choice for you. We are an approved DBS check Umbrella Body, which means that we are authorized by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) to process DBS checks on behalf of organisations.

This is an important service because the vast majority of organisations are unable to request DBS checks directly from the government – they must be requested via a DBS check Umbrella Body.

Why Should You Use Aaron’s Department Over Other DBS Check Umbrella Bodies?

Price isn’t everything, but it’s a good place to start!

A quick look at our DBS pricing page shows that our admin fees are right at the low-end of the market. This chart compares us to three other DBS check Umbrella Bodies, all of whom show up on the first page of Google:

As you can see, we’ve got them soundly beaten on price, despite offering the same general service. And no, we’re not sure what’s going on with Competitor 3’s Basic fees either, but that’s what their website says!

Of course, there is also a government fee that needs paying – £18 for Basic and Standard checks, £38 for Enhanced – but the Umbrella Body won’t keep any of this. Keep an eye out for unscrupulous Umbrella Bodies who have fees higher than this, however, as they’ll be pocketing the difference!

Our Error-Proof System

While your employees are filling out their applications, our automatic checking service detects any mistakes or omissions. This gives your staff the chance to correct any mistakes before sending the check onwards to the DBS! Not only that, our experienced countersignatories also manually check every application.

Why do we put so much effort into getting things right first time? Because if the DBS decides an application contains bad info, they reject it – no refunds. Our checking system minimises the risk of this, saving us all time and money.

Free DBS Fast-Tracking

As a DBS Check Umbrella Body, Aaron’s Department guarantees that any check received before 4pm on a weekday will be checked, countersigned, and sent on to the DBS the very same day. This doesn’t cost any extra, and ensures you’ll get your checks back as quickly as possible.

Automatic DBS Tracking

Our automated DBS tracking system lets you know what stage your check is at, once it’s been sent on to the DBS. Knowing what stage an application has reached is pretty useful because it lets you plan ahead. You can see how your employees’ checks are progressing and make an educated guess as to when they’ll be able to start work.

Top-Notch Customer Service

It’s a bit of a rarity these days, but when you call our number, you actually get to speak to a human on the other end! Our team is available during standard business hours to help with any DBS problems and answer any questions you might have.

Speed and Security

Aaron’s Department is a registered DBS check Umbrella Body, which means we’ve met all the security standards necessary to communicate DBS information directly with the government.

Firstly, you can be sure we have a robust and secure system; otherwise the government wouldn’t have chosen to endorse us.

Secondly, this connection allows us to send the DBS our countersigned checks as quickly as possible. The faster we get them sent, the faster you’ll get the completed checks back, after all.
