PVG Scheme

Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme

If you're an employer and your business involves working with children or protected adults, your employees may be eligible for the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme. The type of work that the PVG Scheme applies to is called 'regulated work'.

PVG scheme

PVG is a membership scheme which makes sure its members are allowed to work with children or protected adults.

If your organisation employs staff in regulated work and they are involved in conduct that harms children or protected adults or places them at risk of harm, by law, you may be required to make a referral to Disclosure Scotland.
