Criminal Record Checking

In Scotland, the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) membership scheme is managed and delivered by Disclosure Scotland. It helps make sure people whose behaviour makes them unsuitable to work with children and/or protected adults can’t do ‘regulated work’ with these groups.

All Event Directors and Run Directors of junior parkrun events in Scotland must have a PVG check. If a cleared Run Director is not available the event must be cancelled.

Scottish Athletics will process the applications for junior parkrun volunteers using the process that is outlined on their website. Click on this link and then follow the instructions under ‘Recruitment, licensing and PVG’ and then ‘scottishathletics digital PVG procedures July 2020’. Here you will find a step by step guide to applying, along with links to the digital forms. Please note that they are no longer accepting paper forms.
