Volunteers within Stirling North Parish Church 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. Therefor, we have a requirement for all volunteers to comply with the statutory process of Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007 scheme(PVG scheme). You may know this by its previous name, Disclosure Scotland.

The Church of Scotland has a deep concern for the wholeness and wellbeing of each individual. Through its Congregations, working together with the Safeguarding Service and statutory agencies, the Church seeks to safeguard the welfare of all people who come into contact with the Church and its services.
The Gospel proclaims that it is the responsibility of everyone within the fellowship of the Church to prevent harm, be it physical, sexual or emotional, and we will always seek to reduce risk.
The Church’s commitment to safeguarding reminds us that God cares passionately about the welfare and wellbeing of all people.
