At the request of the Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA), Barnardos is assisting in the processing of Garda Vetting applications for a number groups/organisations who are not directly registered with the Garda Central Vetting Unit.
We welcome applications from:
- Eligible child care providers for vetting of staff, students and
volunteers as required under Child Care (Pre-school Services) (No2)
Regulations 2006 and Child Care (Pre-school Services) (No2) (Amendment)
(Please note that childcare providers who are members of the National Children’s Nurseries Association or the Irish Pre-School Playgroups Association should contact those organisation directly to process vetting applications.)
- Chernobyl Host Associations for vetting of staff, host families and volunteers in accordance with the Bilateral Agreement between the Republic Of Ireland and the Republic of Belarus and the protocol agreed between the Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA), the Health Service Executive (HSE) and Barnardos in consultation with the Garda Central Vetting Unit (GCVU).
- Other Children’s Groups who do not have access to Garda vetting of staff, students and volunteers.
Please contact us directly by telephone, email or letter in order to establish whether we will be able to assist with your vetting requirements. Organisations accessing vetting through Barnardos’ Vetting Service will then receive an Information Guidance Pack and the necessary forms.
The service can be contacted by telephone, email or letter to our Cork office.
