  1. Hi everyone, I'm looking for a little advice on the PVG scheme in Scotland. After a good few months out of work I have just been offered a job working as a home carer. Not everyone's dream job, but it is something I have been wanting to do for a long time and I am over the moon to get back into work as well. I have a conditional offer on the basis that my PVG clearance comes back ok. I was asked during the interview process if I had any criminal convictions which I honestly declared as not having any, as I haven't. My only worry is that upon reading what is checked during the PVG clearance process I noticed they also gather information from police records that may not have led to a charge or conviction, I believe this is called local information. I am 25 years old now, and when I was 18 (around 7 years) ago I tried to break-up a fairly violent fight between two people in a pub on night. The police turned up at the same time and thought I was involved, I explained what happened but they were having none of it and I subsequently got charged with "A breach of the peace". The case was referred to the procurator fiscal, who eventually decided I was an innocent party in the whole situation and dropped the charge against me. My real worry is although the charge was dropped, would this information show on my PVG and if so would it affect me getting the job? This was the only time in my life where I have ever had any dealings with the police and I'm worrying beyond belief its now going to affect the career I want to pursue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
