We provide a safe environment by appointing Children’s Officers in our Clubs

Role of the Club Children’s Officer

Role of the Designated Officer

Responding swiftly and appropriately to protect the welfare of children who participate in our games and related activities. Ensuring that all of our coaches and volunteers are carefully recruited and selected and that they accept responsibility for ensuring the well-being of children in their care. Ensuring that members, coaches, team mentors, administrators, parents/guardians and spectators sign up to and adhere to our new code - Our Games - our code.  Ensuring that coaches, team mentors, administrators and club members who work with children are Garda Vetted.

Garda Vetting is a very important part of the recruitment of coaches, team mentors, administrators and club members who work with children. The form should be given to the person seeking to volunteer within the club. Once the form is completed it should be handed back to the Children’s Officer or club. The club then forwards the vetting form to the Ladies Gaelic Football Association. The National Children’s Officer will then process the completed form and send it to the Garda Central Vetting Unit. Once the Garda Central Vetting Unit recommends a vetting clearance a letter is sent to the applicant. For further details on this check out Garda Vetting.
