The Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) membership scheme is managed and delivered by Disclosure Scotland. It helps ensure people whose behaviour makes them unsuitable to work with children and protected adults cannot do 'regulated work' with these vulnerable groups. If you are to volunteer with children's groups or in a school you must apply for a PVG.
The SHA will start the first part of the application on your behalf online. You will then be sent the second part of the email to complete and return.
