The PVG Scheme is managed by Disclosure Scotland to protect vulnerable groups from unsuitable individuals working or volunteering with them.
PVG Check is a criminal record check by Disclosure Scotland to ensure suitability for working with vulnerable groups in Scotland, providing extra protection for vulnerable individuals.
A PVG Check will reveal any relevant criminal convictions, cautions, warnings, and other relevant information. This includes spent and unspent convictions, as well as any relevant police intelligence and other non-conviction information.
PVG Check is required for those working in regulated roles with vulnerable individuals such as children or protected adults, including caring duties, teaching or management, offering personal services, or direct work.
The typical turnaround time for a PVG Check is around 14 days.
The cost of a PVG Check is £59 for paid roles and £18 for voluntary roles. Admin fee may apply.
You can apply for a PVG Check online via the Disclosure Scotland website or through a registered body such as Complygate, which can help you complete your application and guide you through the process.
Employers who work with vulnerable groups must conduct PVG checks for their employees and volunteers. Protect vulnerable individuals and apply for a PVG Check online today.
