Quality Development Unit
Since being set up in 2005 to support groups and clubs around the Protection of Children (Scotland) Act 2003 LAYC’s Quality Development Unit (QDU) has focussed on ensuring that all our affiliated groups and clubs in Edinburgh are supported in meeting with the requirements of new legislation and regulations around the protection of children and young people .
LAYC’s Quality Development Officer has been heavily involved in preparing for the introduction of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups scheme which was introduced in February 2011.
Originally funded through the former Scottish Executive’s Changing Children’s Services Fund, funding for the QDU is now administered through The City of Edinburgh Council and is only on an annual basis.
LAYC aim to support groups and clubs by providing:
- Information and guidance about the new PVG scheme
- Support around Policies and Procedures
- Access to checks from Disclosure Scotland
- Advice and support on operating youth and childrens groups safely
- Training and advice on child protection matters
E -mail email@example.com with any enquiries you have around PVG legislation, your organisations policies and procedures, relevant training events, the disclosure process or any other related LAYC services.
