Garda Vetting Information
The Camogie Association has implemented Garda Vetting in the Association as we promote best practice in the recruitment and selection of persons to work with children and young people in the Camogie Association.
Since April 29th 2016 the vetting of all persons who volunteer to work with children or underage teams, i.e. teams and individuals under 18 years of age, and of those who volunteer to work with vulnerable adults as well is now mandatory in law under the National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Acts 2012 to 2016. This now brings the mandatory process of Vetting into all 32 counties.
It is but one part of the overall recommended recruitment and selection procedures for those who work on our behalf in areas of responsibility with children, young people and vulnerable adults, or who may at a later stage seek to work in such areas of responsibility.
Garda Vetting, which is the pre-checking of an applicant’s background for criminal convictions or prosecutions is supported by Sport Ireland and by Sports NI in Northern Ireland and as part of Children First: National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children. Vetting and Police checks have been utilised by many Governmental agencies and by sports and community based organizations for a number of years.
