CRBH    Central Registered Umbrella Body for Hampshire

CRBH is operated by the Councils for Voluntary Service (CVS) in Hampshire.  We aim to support the 2000 community / voluntary organisations in the area.  Many will be working with children or vulnerable adults and will require staff to obtain a CRB disclosure.  CRBH can help with this.

CRBH not only processes the CRB applications but will provide guidance, model policies and training for community groups and registered charities.

September 2012:  ID checking has changed.  If you have a valid Passport, Driving Licence or an original birth certificate issued within 42 days of birth then the process remains simple.  Alternatively a more complicated method may be needed.  We have registered to help make this as simple as it can be. <click here for details>
