PVG Update and reminder

Since the request for coaches to contact me regarding application for PVG membership, I have, so far, sent out 50 applications forms and of those, 30 have been submitted to Disclosure Scotland. However, the number applications doesn’t match the known number of coaches in Scotland. Could I remind all coaches, who have not already contacted me to do so, whether or not they are already a member of the PVG scheme, so that I can ensure they obtain a PVG membership or an update for the SAA. Contact Martin Symonds
