PVG for employers
Last updated: 29 December 2020

Cost of PVG

We prioritise checks for coronavirus (COVID-19) response workers. You will not have to pay for their disclosures. This will remain in place until midnight on Thursday 25 March 2021.

If the organisation is a Qualifying Voluntary Organisation (QVO), they can tick a box on the PVG application form which qualifies them for a free certificate.

Find out how to be approved as a QVO.

If the organisation doesn't meet the requirements to be a QVO, PVG checks have to be paid for, even for volunteers.
