However, the Scottish Government have currently agreed to cover the cost of SSSC membership going forward and PVG checks for a time limited period where PVG checks are free till the end of March 2023 .




The Scottish Government have agreed to cover the payment of SSSC fees in the 2022-2023 pay award. Due to this, SSSC are currently working on updating their systems and processing a large volume of refunds retrospectively to local authority employees.

Employees that are due to renew must still complete an application form. For queries and further information please contact SSSC directly:
