We have had excellent help and support doing the DBS online for the first time. Over the telephone and the online system. Thank you.

Pat Trotter, West Street Pre-school

I find uCheck to be a very good web based service for managing and processing DBS clearance application for employees. They offer a great service and help when you need it. Highly recommended.

Steven Walsh, Smart Education

I found the process via uCheck straightforward and we received all of our results within a few days. The emails to aid you through the process were clear and the support we received when we called was friendly and helpful.
