Vetting

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association administers the Garda Vetting and Access NI checks of all persons who on behalf of the Association work in any capacity with children, young people and vulnerable adults.

This service is but one part of the overall recommended recruitment and selection procedures for those who on our behalf work in areas of responsibility with children and young people, or who may do at a later stage.

For more information on the Vetting Process please see Section 4 (pdf) of the Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Young Players booklet.

Protocol on Vetting Application Outcomes

There are established procedures in place to conduct vetting of all persons who work in any capacity with children, young people and vulnerable adults in the delivery of our games and activies.

Ladies Gaelic Football recognises that there is a standardised vetting system operated by Cumann Luthchleas Gael, Cumann Camogaiochta na nGael, Irish Handball Council and the Rounders Council of Ireland, which functions for the purpose of determining the suitability of personnel to deliver our games and activities in settings which may facilitate unsupervised access to children and/or vulnerable adults, within each of the above bodies.

The status and validity of decisions reached in each body in respect of the suitability of an individual for a position within it, is acknowledged and accepted by each of the other bodies.
