Charles Eason founded Care Check in 2002 when the Disclosure and Barring Service, or CRB as it was known then, was introduced.
For almost a decade, Charles worked with his family’s group of care homes for the elderly. Growing up around businesses such as these, he saw the importance of safeguarding the vulnerable groups being cared for within these environments. Working in web design for a care resource website, Charles grabbed an opportunity to look after what was then a small part of the business. This business would become Care Check.
Over the years, Care Check evolved. After processing minimal paper forms as the business’s sole employee for several years, in 2009, Charles launched his eBulk site with the help of Capita PLC. As a result, we became one of the first DBS Umbrella Bodies to offer electronic applications.
Care Check worked with a wide range of organisations, from care groups, NHS Trusts, schools, charities and all the suppliers of these types of organisations. Charles has now grown the business, with the help of his expert team, to be one of the largest DBS suppliers in the UK, working with nearly 30,000 clients and processing more than 200,000 DBS Checks a year, along with supporting checks such as Right to Work and Social Media Background Checks.
Care Check is Capita Security Watchdog’s largest customer (which became Matrix Security Watchdog after procuring Capita), and they have helped Care Check to evolve into what we are now, and vice versa.
Charles has become a trusted name in the DBS industry, retaining the vast majority of his original clients. Many customers have remained with his business for the 20 years it has been in operation, indicating Charles’ dedication, hard work and integrity – values which have built Care Check into the successful, innovative and caring business it is today.
