PVG (Protecting Vulnerable Groups)
Scottish Volleyball is registered with Central Registered Body in Scotland. Individuals carrying out regulated work with children within Scottish Volleyball must be members of the PVG Scheme.
All Junior Volleyball clubs & teams affiliated to Scottish Volleyball will be required to ensure that all their coaches are PVG checked before entering any Scottish Volleyball competitions.
The Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007 introduced the PVG Scheme for those in regulated work with children and protected adults. Disclosure Scotland holds a Children’s List and an Adult’s List of individuals barred from regulated work with children and/or protected adults.
For the purposes of our organisation and in line with our Procedure for the Recruitment and Selection of Members of Staff/Volunteers in regulated work with children, we require you to become a PVG Scheme member.
Regulated work with children includes:
- caring for children
- teaching, instructing, training or supervising children
- being in sole charge of children
- having unsupervised access to children
- being a host parent.
To arrange for your coaches/club mem to be PVG checked please get in contact with the SVA Lead Child Protection Officer via email or call 0131 556 4633
