Q: Garda Vetting: Who Needs to be Vetted
A: Any person who is carrying out work or activity, a necessary and regular part of which consists mainly of the person having access to, or contact with, children or vulnerable adults.
What this means is that anyone in your club who has regular and ongoing contact with children and therefore the opportunity to build up a relationship of trust with a child must be vetted. Top of this group are the coaches and assistant coaches, but also your club children’s officer, designated person, youth team managers and the captains of adult teams on which underage children regularly play. Ongoing and regular is not defined in the Act but the Child Safeguarding Manual has defined it as once a week or more, four times a month or more and overnight.
