National Vetting Bureau (NVB)
Any adult volunteers name on the ORS who have not been vetted by March, will be removed. Please review Managers names in your area that are on the system and contact the Helpdesk to have them removed if they are no longer a volunteer with Community Games. Niamh Doyle has the complete list of people who have been vetted.
If a Children's Officer or secretary needs to check a person's status, please get in touch with County Children's Officer Niamh Doyle.
Areas must ensure ALL volunteers are garda vetted. For safeguarding courses see Clare Sports Partnership.
It is a legal offence to begin working with children or vulnerable adults without being vetted. Individuals can face a fine/jail term if convicted. Under 18 volunteers must be vetted. The parent/guardian must complete the Parent Consent Form for vetting for anyone U18.
As an organization that works solely with children, it is essential that each member of Community Games is Vetted.
If a person has already been Garda Vetted for another sporting organization they will have to fill in a Vetting form for Community Games.
Non vetted volunteers will be removed from the ORS in March 2018. This is to ensure that we are in line with Data Protection laws.
The NVB application process is a two part process for the applicant:
1. Complete the 'Community Games E-vetting invitation and ID validation Form'
2. You will be sent an e-mail and invited to complete the online vetting application – through the Garda Vetting portal.
It is compulsory to be Garda Vetted every three years.
Forms can be downloaded from the Community Games website.
