Register for PVG

Alba Childcare Agency is a Registered Body with Disclosure Scotland and can act as an ‘umbrella body’ to countersign all your Protection of Vulnerable Group (PVG) Scheme applications.


To apply for PVG please register with us; however, we need a formal agreement to act on your behalf. You will need to read the Code of Practice and accept this as part of the Alba Childcare Agency contract terms along with the secure handling of disclosure information and the recruitment of ex-offenders.

As soon as we receive your request, we will post out your requested PVG Scheme Application Forms; this will usually be within 3-5 working days.

Once you have completed your forms, return them to us along with copies of any 3 of the following forms of identification;

  • Driving licence
  • Passport
  • Birth certificate
  • Utility bill
  • Bank statement

These must be countersigned by an independent person to verify identity.


We cannot process your application until we have received payment as follows:

  • New Applications to join PVG Scheme (inclusive of admin fee): £71.50
  • Existing PVG
    – If you answer ‘Yes’ to question A3: £30.50
    – If you answer ‘No’ to question A3- Scheme Record is required: £71.50

Your completed application will then be passed to Disclosure Scotland to process.

Once we have received your PVG from Disclosure Scotland, we will forward it to you. As part of the terms of our agreement, you are expected to adhere to our policy relating to the secure handling of disclosure information.

If you have any questions regarding the PVG Scheme application, please contact our friendly team who will be happy to help.
