Child Protection - The PVG Scheme

Anyone undertaking a supervisory role in any Club must be a member of the PVG Scheme and understand their role and responsibilities.

Adults who havenít previously volunteered and havenít had the necessary vetting checks should not be left alone with players or take them to the toilet unaccompanied.

For further information on Child Protection, please see http://www.scottishyouthfa.co.uk/index.php/information-downloads/protection-information

Your Club should have a Child Protection Officer who should be able to answer your queries.

As of Summer 2015, it will be SYFA Policy that all Club Officials are members of PVG Scheme. Please start the registration process now!

To be PVG checked,  every official must complete either

>    PVG Application for Membership (for officials who are not members of the PVG Scheme)
>    Existing PVG Application (for officials with a PVG membership for another organisation)

All PVG applications must be witnessed by an SYFA Additional Signatory, who will require to see:-

>    A birth certificate. No birth certificate, no PVG. Photocopies are not acceptable.
>    A passport (if you have one)
>    A driving licence (if you have one)
>     If you have neither a passport nor a photo driving licence, some other photo id must be shown, eg work id
>    Proof of address - a recent utility bill or official letter
>    You will also require to know your National Insurance number
>    If you are an existing PVG scheme member, you must bring along your current PVG Scheme certificate.

Each applicant must appear in person and must have all their documentation - not just a subset that they deem acceptable. If you don't have all necessary documnets, you won't be checked.
