The Garda Vetting Process

All volunteers will need to be Garda Vetted as part of their application process, in accordance with WMOF2018 Child protection and Safeguarding polices.

After you have completed your online volunteer application form, instructions regarding the Garda Vetting procedure will be sent to you. This will explain the next steps and will involve coming to our offices in Dublin to start the Garda Vetting process in person. An online Garda Vetting form (eVetting) will then need to be completed. We plan to have more locations available to process your Garda Vetting over the coming months.

All Garda vetting is now done online. An applying volunteer will be able to trace the progress of their own application.
