What is the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme?

The Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme launched in Scotland on 28 February 2011 and is operated by Disclosure Scotland.

The PVG scheme is a membership programme for those who have regular contact with children and protected adults, requiring them to apply for inclusion on a continuously updated register in order to be eligible for such voluntary or professional positions. For any queries you can contact Disclosure Scotland on 03000 2000 40 or email info@disclosurescotland.gsi.gov.uk.

The Disclosure Scotland website has more guidance and information for individuals and organisations.

Please note that Making Music will not be able to process applications for the PVG scheme.
