Aaron's Department, a DBS Umbrella Body, is authorised by the UK Government to act as an intermediary between the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and an employer/organisation who wishes to complete a DBS check.

Our bespoke, online system is directly connected to the UK Government Gateway, and is designed to process your applications quickly and securely, ensuring you get a speedy DBS certificate return.

What is a DBS Umbrella Body?

Umbrella Bodies function as an intermediary between an organisation, which is entitled to ask exempted questions under the ROA 1974 Exceptions Order 1975 and the Disclosure and Barring Service.

What is the Role of a DBS Umbrella Body?

DBS Umbrella Bodies play an essential role by providing access to DBS checks to organisations who cannot directly register with the Disclosure and Barring Service.

They provide support, guidance and the necessary IT infrastructure to enable companies to apply for online DBS checks. Signing up with Aaron's Department is not only easy (and free), but it will give you a fast and cost-effective DBS checking service.

How Does a DBS Umbrella Body Work?

Understanding the rules and the process of applying for a DBS check takes time. An Umbrella Body has already spent the time needed to learn these rules and procedures. It then utilises this knowledge by investing in creating a software application and service necessary to enable organisations to apply for a DBS check online.

What Makes a Good DBS Umbrella Body?

In addition to supplying the infrastructure needed to obtain the DBS check, a good umbrella company will also be experts in the area. Having a team of experienced DBS checkers on your side, you can rest assured that you won't be wasting your time or money.

The quality of the application system should also be considered. The system should be well-built, easy to use, and continuously checking for errors to make the application process simple.
