Description

Disclosure (Scotland) Bill & the Future of PVG for Local Authorities

PVG is changing…

On the 13th June 2019, the Disclosure (Scotland) Bill was submitted into the Scottish Parliament proposing key changes to the legislation underpinning the Protection of Vulnerable Groups and the Disclosure of Criminal Information (available here).

This Bill has been designed to deliver a balance between the twin objectives of delivering a fairer, less invasive, disclosure regime whilst also strengthening the ability to protect the most vulnerable in society. These proposals were formed following the public consultation conducted in 2018 (report available here).

Disclosure Scotland are keen to engage with key stakeholders to explore the proposals within the submitted Bill and the steps required to implement them.

We are running a number of sessions across the country, targeting prominent Local Authorities to explore these proposals and the steps required to implement them.

These sessions are targeted towards signatories of Registered Bodies & Regulators and have been designed to generate informed discussions on how the proposed changes will impact your organisation as well as the wider sector. It also gives you the opportunity to discuss these proposals with the signatories of other attending organisations.

If your signatory is unavailable, we would encourage attendance from a representative with appropriate knowledge/expertise of PVG and its implementation.

Having your say will help to form the future of the PVG Scheme and the implementation of the proposals submitted to Parliament.


Session Duration: 2.5 hours

If you require more information or have any questions please contact our Customer Engagement team via dsworkshop@disclosurescotland.gov.scot
