Webinar: Garda Vetting & Screening - The Basics

When working with volunteers, screening doesn’t begin and end with Garda vetting. Screening continues throughout an organisation's engagement with volunteers.

This webinar session will walk you through the screening process, highlighting the most appropriate screening methods for your particular situation.

Participants will leave the session with:

  • a better grasp of the Garda vetting process 
  • an in-depth knowledge of a variety of screening tools you can use yourself
  • ability to state which roles should and shouldn’t be Garda vetted in your organisation
  • an insight into how Garda vetting can fit within good volunteer management practice in your organisation.
