Protection of Vulnerable Groups Scheme (formerly Enhanced Disclosure)

On 28 February 2011, the Scottish Government introduced a new membership scheme to replace and improve upon the current disclosure arrangements for people who work with vulnerable groups.

Due to the nature of our business, all applicants who fall into the ‘regulated work’ category, i.e. all roles which involve direct/unsupervised care giving to vulnerable adults MUST become members of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (”PVG”) Scheme to work with vulnerable adults.

PVG Scheme promises to:-

  • Help to ensure that those who have regular contact with children and protected adults through paid and unpaid work do not have a known history of harmful behaviour,
  • Be quick and easy to use, reducing the need for PVG Scheme members to complete a detailed application form every time a disclosure check is required,
  • Strike a balance between proportionate protection and robust regulation and make it easier for employers to determine who they should check to protect their client group.
