The Catholic Church in Scotland has committed to maintaining and   improving standards of safeguarding practice and has undertaken to ensure                                                                that all volunteers complete the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) process.                                                                                                    The PVG scheme has replaced the Disclosure process, and EVERY volunteer MUST now complete a PVG application.                             As Parish Safeguarding Co-ordinator, I have agreed to undertake this task, and plan to start this process in January, continuing into the New Year as required. I will be in touch shortly with groups and individuals to make arrangements to complete this task.
