Central Registered Body in Scotland

The Central Registered Body in Scotland (CRBS) offer community groups free access to disclosure checks on volunteers as well as guidance, advice and support relating to working with children and vulnerable adults and the Protection of Vulnerable Groups Act (Scotland). 

To register to access PVG Scheme Records through CRBS your community group must:-

  • be able to prove that it is a bona fide voluntary organisation –  for example, provide a copy of your constitution plus details on what you do, your management committee and funding details
  • identify a lead signatory (or collator) for your group who will have to undergo a visual identity check. 
  • comply with the code of Practice for Registered Persons and Other Recipient of Disclosure Information

Once enrolled with CRBS, your organisation can request PVG Scheme Records free of charge to help assess whether or not your volunteers are suitable to carry out ‘regulated work’ with children or ‘protected’ adults.
