The latest updates, tips and advice around Disclosure Services and PVGs...
You have less than a month left to have your say! If you were unable to attend one of the sessions, don't worry, we're hosting an online workshop that you can take part in from your home or office.
The workshop has been designed to generate discussion about the current consultation on PVG, consider how the proposed changes will impact on both your organisation and the voluntary sector and to help you to decide what information you would like to contribute to the consultation
On 25th April 2018 the Scottish Government and Disclosure Scotland launched a consultation document that will form the basis of the PVG scheme going forward. The replies to this consultation will form the basis of the fully amended PVG system that is anticipated to be launched in the next couple of years.
Processing your PVG applications is one of our main priorities. We want to do this quickly and efficiently. We recently have been experiencing an increase in underpaid postage and missing cheques which is delaying the process for you.
You may be aware that on 17th February 2018 there were some changes made to the law in relation to the disclosure of spent convictions.
We recently sent our quarterly newsletter where we share information and keep VSDS customers up-to-date with what’s going on in the service. Here's a little of what we shared
