In order to start picking up shifts with Florence, we need to apply for a PVG on your behalf through our Organisation.

A payment of £18.00 to Disclosure Scotland is still required in order to progress with your application, however, this will be reimbursed after you have completed your first shift with us. Please be aware you will need to have had adults as one of the barring lists we have screened for otherwise the amount goes up to £59.00.

To apply for an update of a PVG, please send a copy of Proof of Address (dated in the last 3 months) with the subject ‘PVG Update Request’ to .

Once an application has been made from our side, you will receive an email from Disclosure Scotland with a link to your part of the application and for payment to be made.

Please note that if payment of £18.00 is not made within 7 days of the application, a new application will have to be made.

An update of a PVG is usually with us within 7-14 days of payment being made, however, the SLA for Disclosure Scotland is currently 30 days.

You won’t be able to work with us until we have received the results from our application, however, if you have a PVG issued within the last 12 months, you can upload this to your profile to fast track your application.

If you have a new conviction since your last PVG, please click on this article here for more information.

By applying for a PVG you are confirming that you have the relevant experience in order to work with Florence. If this cannot be confirmed through satisfactory references you won’t be eligible for reimbursement.
