Girlguiding and Girlguiding Scotland are committed to maintaining a safe space for all of our members and volunteers as a top priority.
All Girlguiding Scotland volunteers in roles which require a disclosure check are required to join the Scottish Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme. A local commissioner will advise new volunteers if their role requires PVG scheme membership while an ID Verifier will provide support to complete the relevant PVG application.
Are you an ID Verifier?
If you need additional copies of PVG forms and/or guidance notes, these should be requested via Disclosure Scotland directly by calling 0300 220 0777 or by completing their online order form here. Disclosure Scotland aim to dispatch forms within 48 hours of receiving your request.
Below are some documents for Girlguiding Scotland ID Verifiers, commissioners or any new volunteers who have questions about the disclosure check process:

- PVG Coversheet for ID verifiers

- PVG guidance notes for volunteers (joining PVG for the first time)
