Question: Why do I need a disclosure to work with some employers?
Answer: You can apply for a basic disclosure directly. For example this can be for a new job or to undertake volunteer work. For most other types of regulated work with children or protected adults, the PVG Scheme is now the most appropriate type of check. Regulated work is the term used by the PVG Act to define the types of work which barred individuals must not do, and for which PVG Scheme membership is available.
