Vetting of Volunteers

In Ireland all those involved in ‘relevant work’, that is work or activity that is carried out by a person, a necessary and regular part of which consists mainly of the person having access to, or contact with, children or vulnerable adults are required to be vetted.

Vetting can be completed online but can only be processed by the IRFU on completion of the id check and verification by the CWO.

Club coaches and volunteers should access Rugby Connect to start the vetting process.
