One of Volunteer Centre Borders' most common enquiries is around the Protecting Vulnerable Groups Scheme (PVG) and we recently held a half-day workshop in Hawick to help provide the most up-to-date information and to dispel some misconceptions.
We are holding another workshop in Duns on November 8th 2016, 10.30am-1.30pm at Berwickshire Housing Association, 55 Newtown Street, Duns, TD11 3AU.
This will be a half day workshop, facilitated by Ann Ferguson, Volunteer Scotland's Compliance and Training Officer alongside VCB's own PVG Officer, Amanda Harvey
Topics will include:
The Code of Practice
What is Regulated Work?
Interpreting Disclosure Information
Making a Referral
It is an interactive session with plenty of opportunities to ask questions and Ann will be available afterwards to deal with any specific issues you might have.
Places are likely to be limited for this event, which costs £20 including refreshments.
