Garda Vetting

It is compulsory to be Garda Vetted when working with young people. All our staff and volunteers are required to be vetted before undertaking any activities. 

Garda Vetting is an important part of staff and volunteer recruitment, but should be seen as one part of a much wider process in making sure that a person is suitable to work with young people.
