Volunteer recruitment checks – PVG

Girlguiding and Girlguiding Scotland are committed to maintaining a safe space for all of our members and volunteers as a top priority.

All adult volunteers are required to follow Girlguiding’s Recruitment & Vetting procedures and comply with the associated policy.

For roles that require Protection of Vulnerable Group (PVG) Scheme membership, an application or update form should be completed with the support of a local ID Verifier.

If you are already a member of the PVG scheme and require your scheme membership number or a replacement copy of your PVG scheme membership certificate, please contact Disclosure Scotland directly on 0300 0200 040.

If you require support to complete an application or update or have questions about valid forms of identification, please consult the info and documents below.

If you have any questions please contact Girlguiding’s Disclosures team on 020 7834 6242 or email
