Changes to our services

We're making changes to our services by 1 April 2025. This is to implement a new law, the Disclosure (Scotland) Act 2020.

The Act will change the disclosure system in Scotland, including:

  • fewer disclosure levels
  • changes to Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) membership
  • new referral powers for councils and integration boards
