Keeping Children Safe: Information disclosure about child sexual offenders

This guidance was published in March 2011.

“Community disclosure is now running in your area. This will provide a formal route for the public to directly raise child protection concerns and be confident that action will follow.

This enables parents, carers or guardians of children under 18 years old to make a formal request for the disclosure of information about a named person who may have contact with their child if they are concerned that he or she might be a registered child sexual offender – for example, if a single mother wants to find out more about her new boyfriend.

It does not replace checks completed by Disclosure Scotland or employment checks provided by the Vetting and Barring Scheme (the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007).”
