Disclosure Checks

Action in Mind has a policy of disclosure checking all staff and volunteers, including the board of trustees, when engaging with any of our activities, whether or not they directly involve children or protected adults.

This means that staff and volunteers working directly with what the Vulnerable Groups (PVG) (Scotland) Act 2017 refers to as Regulated Work with Children or Protected Adults, are required to be a member of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups Scheme (PVG Scheme) which delivers on the provisions outlined in the Act.  Regulated work is the term used by the PVG Act to define the type of work which barred individuals must not do.  

For staff and volunteers not directly working with children or protected adults, we require an Enhanced Disclosure.
