    DBS umbrella organisations 3rd May 13 at 12:27 PM
    I have to get a DBS (previously CRB) on myself for a freelance tutoring job. I'm aware that I can't do this myself and have to go through an umbrella organisation, but am a little wary about getting ripped off by someone who is basically charging me money to fill out a form for me, and am slightly confused by the new name and rules as there seems to be a lot of outdated information on CRBs around. (I'm not entirely sure why I can't just apply directly... seems like excessive amounts of red tape)

    Has anyone used umbrella organisations for this who can recommend any companies as being more trustworthy / cheaper than others?
