DBS Checks are now carried out at the Roundhouse


The Disclosure and Barring Service is the new name for what used to be called the Criminal Records Bureau.

Many people are familiar with the term CRB, and DBS has now replaced this.

These checks can be done by organisations on staff and volunteers whose work involves close and (regular) contact with children and  vulnerable adults.

It is very important that employers are certain about eligibility before requesting a DBS check, as it is an offence to ask for a check on someone who isn’t eligible.

Eligibility information can be found on the DBS website www.gov.uk/dbs

Types of Checks

There are two levels of checks: Standard and Enhanced. Information on who can apply for which level can be found on the DBS website.

What do I need to do?

Email us a completed request form.

All applications are completed face to face at our offices Hemel Hempstead and processed through a partnership agreement with North Herts CVS (NHCVS), a DBS registered umbrella body. The process takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. The individual will also need to bring 3 original identification documents.

Information packs for organisations requesting a DBS can be found on the Support4Dacorum web site.

To complete a DBS check you will need to make an appointment at:

The Volunteer Centre,
The Roundhouse,
Hemel Hempstead
