Who are we?

DBS Cymru is the registered CRB Umbrella Body for our charity MHM Wales. Our DBS registration number is 30023800006.

CRB Wales 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 became known as DBS Cymru which is the name used by our charity MHM Wales for our DBS umbrella service.
