Disclosure Scotland Fees - Your feedback required

We would like to inform you that as part of Disclosure Scotland's efforts to implement the Disclosure (Scotland) Act 2020 by April 2025, they are reviewing their fee waivers, discounts, and registration fees.

The public consultation on these matters will take place from 5th March to 28th May 2024.

We encourage your organisation to participate in the consultation and attend online or live sessions whenever possible to share your feedback. (More information available below).

The Consultation Paper

The full consultation paper is available to read and complete online on the Citizen Space website via the button below.

The Consultation Workshops

The short workshops will provide an opportunity to review the proposals laid out in the consultation, and allow you to provide feedback and highlight areas to be considered if these proposals are passed to Scottish Ministers.

These sessions will focus specifically on exploring the following proposals:

  • fee discounts for people in receipt of certain benefits
  • fee discounts for care experienced young people
  • fee discounts for Qualifying Voluntary Organisations (QVOs)
  • registration fees for organisations who countersign any level of disclosure (Accredited Bodies)

Disclosure Scotland will take you through each of these proposals, record your thoughts on them and advise how else you can contribute to the consultation to help shape any proposals sent to Scottish Ministers.

If you’re interested in attending any of these sessions please contact the Disclosure Scotland Events Team via email: dsworkshop@disclosurescotland.gov.scot 

Please note that your feedback from these sessions will be recorded and transcribed to ensure your views are considered. We ask that all attendees are familiar with our processes and therefore able to provide informed feedback on behalf of your organisation.

Note: This communication is being published on behalf of Disclosure Scotland. If you have any enquiries regarding this information please contact them via one of the available options on their website.
