The online application form is available on the Police Scotland website and allows any member of the public to submit an application direct if they have a concern about a person’s access or contact with a child.

The community disclosure scheme gives parents; carers or guardians a more formal mechanism for requesting information about someone involved in their family life, specifically it they are concerned that the person might be a child sexual offender.

The Scheme also provides for any other person who is concerned about a person’s access to someone else’s child to apply albeit only the parent; carer or guardian can be given information under the Scheme.
