PVG Disclosure Bill Information Session
11th August 2019
Tuesday 3rd September 2019
10am - noon
Pulteney Centre, Wick.
This event, delivered by Volunteer Scotland will provide you with the opportunity to discuss the PVG Disclosure Bill in greater detail. The Disclosure (Scotland) Bill sets out ways to make the disclosure process simpler and easier to understand.
Some of the proposals in the bill include:
issuing all disclosures under one act
reducing the number of disclosure products
using digital services to make employment checks quicker and reduce the burden on employers and applicants
extra clarity on who qualifies for the PVG Scheme
giving applicants more control over their disclosure data
more fair and transparent review processes
It also proposes to make vulnerable groups safer by:
requiring everyone who works with vulnerable groups to become a member of the PVG Scheme
giving more powers to Police Scotland, and more referral powers to local authorities and Health and Social Care partnerships
giving more focus on the people who have actual power over children and protected adults, rather than using their job title to decide whether they need to become a member
