About Us

DBS Cymru is the registered CRB Umbrella Body for our charity Mental Health Maters Wales (MHM Wales)

We provides a customer focussed personalised service to both large and small employers, both private and voluntary sector; including those who are self-employed requiring DBS checks.

DBS Cymru was previously known as CRB Wales and was registered as a CRB Umbrella Body in February 2002 when the CRB Disclosure programme was first launched. Since then we have maintained a steady and loyal customer base throughout Wales. 

When the (then) Criminal Records Bureau last conducted a scheduled review of our services, their report concluded that we are fully compliant with the DBS Code of Practice, "for which we commend you". So we reckon we are pretty good at what we do. 

Periodically, we carry out customer surveys so we can monitor our own performance and make essential improvements to our service for the benefit of our customers. 

Over the years, we have formed some solid alliances with a number of individuals and organisations. We now countersign applications of a wide variety of diverse businesses.

In August 2018 CRB Wales changed its name to DBS Cymru 

Our Disclosure and Barring Service registration number is 30023800006. 

Service Assurance

Our commitment to you is we will at all times offer a professional and confidential service. 

We will thoroughly check each application to ensure all information is present and our aim is to counter-sign and forward applications to the DBS, provided that they are completed correctly and you have assured us that the worker's identity has been checked, within one working day of us receiving them. 

We can assure our customers we treat all data and information received and handled in the strictest confidence, and all information received and retained in connection with DBS Checks complies with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 2018.
