Garda Vetting Update: 04 June 2019

Garda Vetting and Outings

We have received a number of Garda Vetting applications for parents going on outings. Parents who go on outings with a preschool service do not require Garda Vetting as they do not have unsupervised access to the children. 

However, parents should not be allowed unsupervised access to other people’s children. In addition, they should not be counted as part of the Tusla mandated ratio. (Q125 – read more)

Under the National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Acts 2012-2016, only people whose relevant work activity, where a necessary and/or regular part of which consists mainly of the person having access to, or contact with, children or vulnerable persons, need Garda Vetting.

A parent who volunteers with an early childhood setting each week, for example, requires Garda vetting. However, a parent looking after their own child on a once-off outing does not.

If you have any queries in relation to Garda vetting, please contact us on (01) 405 7102 or consult the dedicated Garda vetting section on the website.
