New disclosure regime

A TRAINING session to help sports clubs and organisations in the Borders understand changes in the legislation regarding disclosure checks will be held in Galashiels later this month.

A representative from the Central Registered Body in Scotland (CRBS) will give a presentation on the new Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) initiative, outlining its implications, in the Volunteer Hall on Tuesday, March 29 at 6.30pm. Representatives of Children 1st will be on hand to answer questions and take any queries. Each attendee will be given an information pack about the PVG process to take back to their clubs.

The event is open to any sports club/organisation within the Borders. Spaces are limited so each club can only be allocated two places.

For more information and to register interest in the session, contact Scottish Borders Council Sports Development Officer Andy Lawrie on 01896 756274 or
