You may need a PVG/Disclosure check before you start your volunteering role.
What you need to know:
A disclosure (PVG) check is an in-depth criminal record check used by employers/voluntary organisations on behalf of applicants to ensure they are suitable for the role in question. At this level, it shows information of all cautions, warnings and reprimands a person has. PVG is the Protection of Vulnerable Groups scheme that is administered by Disclosure Scotland. It ensures that people deemed unsuitable to work with children and/or protected adults are refrained from doing so. If you are doing regulated work for an organisation, then it is advised to get checked for each organisation you are involved with.
- If you are a volunteer and looking for more information on how to get a disclosure check for the role you are applying for, please speak with the organisation you are applying with.
- If you are an organisation that requires more information on the Disclosure Checks process and/or enrolling your organisation with Volunteer Scotland Disclosure Services, please view information on the Volunteer Scotland website.
