Disclosure Scotland

Disclosure Scotland helps employers make safer decisions when they're recruiting people. It also makes sure unsuitable people don't work with vulnerable groups, including children. Find out more about Disclosure Scotland.

A Bill has been introduced that may make disclosure legislation simpler and less confusing. Find out more information here.

If you live in England or Wales, apply for your criminal record check from the Disclosure and Barring Service.
