Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG)
Within District 1010 there are a number of activities which automatically require participants to be members of the PVG scheme for Rotary.
RYLA activity leaders
RYLA counsellors and mentors
Youth exchange host parents and drivers
Young carers activity leaders (residential)
Riding for the disabled.
Any Rotary member (including relatives of members, associate members, members of satellite clubs and friends of Rotary) who is involved with these activities must be registered with the PVG scheme for Rotary. Membership of the PVG scheme for another organisation or for work WILL NOT be enough, a further check for Rotary must be carried out. Remember, our Rotary insurers insist that all necessary checks (PVG and Health and Safety) are carried out prior to our involvement in any activity. Failure to do so could render your clubs insurance invalid.
If your club has an activity involving children or protected adults which is not on the list above, please get in touch with Alistair Robb who can advise you whether PVG membership is required in your particular case.
