All LGFA Clubs are signed up to the Code of Ethics and Good Practice Guidelines which requires all officers, mentors or volunteers involved with underage teams within your Club to be vetted.
Garda Vetting is conducted in respect of 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 persons.
Once you have been Garda vetted, the vetting period will last for 3 years currently.
You can tell when you were vetted by looking at your Vetting number (eg) LGF001-20180308-0****
The number in the middle indicates this person was vetted in 2018, 03 March, 8th. Anybody who’s vetting is pre 2018 has now expired.
Please speak with your Children's Officer within your Club prior to commencing the vetting process. Here is the vetting link for all coaches/
officers/ helpers who need to reapply for vetting.
