Step 1. Nominate a lead person
The lead person will be responsible for completing the enrolment process and ensuring that the organisation complies with the requirements of the Code of Practice.
The lead person should therefore be someone within your organisation who is involved in the recruitment of paid staff/ volunteers and can implement the correct procedures, is in a position to communicate with us when required and can receive regular communication from us.
Verification of identity of the lead person for enrolment must be confirmed by one of the following:
- Responsible Person Identification Form
This form will be used when the lead person is enrolling the organisation and is not submitting a PVG application for themselves at the same time. The form will be completed by a responsible person.
- PVG Disclosure Certificate Agreement Form
This form will be used when the lead person is enrolling the organisation and is submitting a PVG application for themselves at the same time. The form will be completed by a member of the organisations committee/board. The person who signs this declaration will receive a phone call from us giving the results of the lead person’s disclosure record.
The minimum identification to be checked is either one document with a photograph and one document with your current home address or 3 documents, 2 of which must have your current home address. Documents confirming the home address should be issued within the last 3 months.
