The Disclosure Scotland Bill - Consultation

The Scottish Parliament

The Disclosure Scotland Bill has recently been published and the Education & Skills Committee at the Parliament is seeking views on it.

Disclosure Scotland and the processes around Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) will be familiar to most people in the voluntary and public sector.

The Disclosure (Scotland) Bill will make changes to the system of criminal record checks which is administered by Disclosure Scotland. 

The Education and Skills Committee are scrutinising this Bill and wants to hear from anyone who has experience of the PVG scheme and the disclosure system in general.

The Online Call for Views can be found HERE and is open for responses until 20th August 2019. More information on the Bill itself can be found HERE
