PVG Scheme Consultation

On 25th April 2018 the Scottish Government and Disclosure Scotland launched a consultation document regarding the future of the PVG scheme. This consultation will outline how the PVG scheme will change to becoming mandatory and give organisations, groups and individuals the opportunity to voice their thoughts to ensure policy makers fully understand the impact the proposed changes will have on anyone that uses the disclosure system. The consultation will end on July 18th 2018 after running for 12 weeks, giving respondents an opportunity to consult with stakeholders. The consultation consists of seven sections, these sections provides information and discuss policy options and then ask the respondent to answer questions on matters relating to possible options for change. Over the next 3 months you have the opportunity to feedback on issues such as: • The number of disclosure products that are available • Fee structures • Moving to a digital service • Replacing regulated work with a list of positions. • Definition of a protected adult • The duration of PVG scheme membership • Introducing a membership card • The definition of a qualifying voluntary organisation • Implementation of a fee for volunteer disclosure checks • Changes to the referral, barring and under consideration process. • The removal of information from a scheme record. This is just a selection of the areas that the consultation is covering and Volunteer Scotland Disclosure Services would recommend reading over the consultation prior to starting to answer the questions so that you have an overview of the complete proposal before answering. The consultation can be found with the following link
