Child Protection


There is more awareness than ever before that we have the right people working with our children and young people and we must be seen to be not only complying with the regulations but also setting a high standard for those who look after the children and young people in our care.  We have published and follow a set of child protection guidelines and ask that everyone who works with these groups joins the PVG (Protection of Vulnerable Groups) Scheme.

This scheme starts officially on the 28th February 2011 and initially only NEW volunteers and staff will be joined to the PVG scheme. In years 2-4 a staggered approach will be taken to join the rest of our band of volunteers who were disclosed through Disclosure Scotland. If you would like further information on this please check out http://www/scotland.gov.uk/pvglegislation.

If you are already a PVG member please let us know. We still need you to fill in an update application form when you start to work with our young people.
