  • PVG Disclosure Bill update

    Created: 25/07/2019

    You may remember that there was a consultation on the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Act in 2018. Organisations and individuals were invited to have their say on how they think the Scheme could be improved. The results formed part of a draft Bill that is currently going through the Scottish Parliament.

    The Bill, after being introduced into parliament will go through three stages of scrutiny.

    In the first stage, the Bill will be debated in Parliament. If Parliament agree with the principles of the Bill it will pass to the second stage where amendments can be made. 

    The final stage allows for more amendments and further debate before holding a vote. If the Bill passes, it goes for Royal Assent before becoming an Act of the Scottish Parliament. This is a lengthy process and you can track the Bill's progress on the Scottish Parliament website.

    Fife Voluntary Action will continue to keep you updated with the progress of the Bill, and as always, if you’d like help with anything related to PVG/Disclosure, e-mail us at [email protected].
