  • Choosing the Right DBS Umbrella Body for Your DBS Checks is the First Step Towards a Fast and Secure Service

A DBS Umbrella Body is authorised by the UK Government to act as an intermediary between the Disclosure and Barring Service and an employing organisation requiring the completion of a DBS check. With a bespoke system designed to process your applications securely, Aaron’s Department is a registered Umbrella Body that provides a DBS checking process that is fast and reliable.

What is a DBS Umbrella Body?

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

Do I Need to Use a DBS Umbrella Body?

Unless you are an organisation which needs to apply for a considerable number of DBS checks annually, then you will need to use an authorised Umbrella Body to process DBS checks on your behalf.

What is the Role of the DBS Umbrella Bodies?

DBS Umbrella Bodies play an essential role by providing access to DBS checks to organisations which are not able to register directly with the Disclosure and Barring Service. They provide support and guidance and the necessary IT infrastructure to enable small companies to apply for DBS checks online. It is easy to sign up to Aaron’s Department which will provide you with 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 a DBS check, a good Umbrella Body will also provide an organisation with the help and guidance necessary to ensure the fast processing of each application. The quality of the online DBS application system should also be considered, a system that checks for errors automatically will save a lot of time and eliminate rejected applications.
