PVG to go live on 28th Feb 2011

The Scottish Government have now announced that the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme will go live on 28th February 2011.

The new PVG scheme will replace the current disclosure arrangements for people who work with vulnerable groups, e.g children.

Youth Scotland will be supporting groups, workers and volunteers in the transition to the new scheme. Affiliated clubs and groups will be able to access the PVG Scheme through Youth Scotland from the 'go live' date.

For information about the scheme and how it will affect you and your group, please download the PVG information sheet here.

If you have any questions about the changes from Disclosure, or would like to access the PVG Scheme through Youth Scotland, please contact Suzanne Forup, Network Development Manager at suzanne.forup@youthscotland.org.uk or call 0131 554
