North Parish Church - Safeguarding
Volunteers within NPC play a key part in helping the church achieve its mission. As part of this, the Church of Scotland has a firm commitment to prevent harm or abuse to children and adults at risk, however low we think that risk may be. Therefore, we have a requirement for all volunteers to comply with the statutory process of Protection of Vunerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007, scheme (PVG scheme). You may know this by its previous name, Disclosure Scotland.
If you would like to be involved in working with children or vulnerable adults within NPC (e.g. Zones or Holiday Club) please speak to Lynne Easton or click on the links below to familiarise yourself with the process and to download the application form.
