Welcome. Use links below to access basic information about our diocese.
On this page you will find all the information you need that is relevant to Safeguarding, this includes policies and procedures and these can be downloaded for your own convienience.
Information regarding Garda vetting is also available here as are the 2 types of vetting forms and the checklist. We advise you go through the checklist when you have completed the forms as they cannot be processed without the neccessary ID and address verification documents.
As the Garda Vetting process can be confusing at times, we have attached two “How To” sample applications. One for the “long form” (NVB2) and one for the “e-vetting invitation” (NVB1). These samples are intended as a quick reference if you are unsure of how the applications are completed.
Please note that vetting for schools is done through the Catholic Primary Schools Management Association (CPSMA). Information and the necessary forms are available here.
