Please note: 

All coaches working with children and protected adults are responsible for being knowledgeable and compliant with the current Protecting Vulnerable Groups Act. If coaches are undertaking regulated work with protected groups they should have the correct PVG check in place.

Coaches can be PVG checked as self employed or in association with a club, institution or local authority. Coaches need an update to be undertaken with every organisation they undertake regulated work with. This is so that if an individual became barred from working with a protected group every organisation they work with can be informed.

Badminton Scotland can act as an Intermediary Body between Badminton Clubs and Disclosure Scotland, if the club is affiliated and contracted with us. This means any coaches that work with a club can ask Badminton Scotland to process their PVG check. Please get in touch with David Cameron on businessinfo@badmintonscotland.org.uk for more information.

Disclosure Scotland has information on the PVG process on their website.
