Child Welfare Procedures

Lakelands FC is committed to ensuring that all necessary steps are taken to protect and safeguard the welfare of the children and young people who play with the club, this includes ensuring that all managers and coaches are Garda Vetted and that safe recruitment procedures are followed. The National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Acts 2012 – 2016 commenced on 29th April 2016 and since that date a statutory obligation has been placed upon the FAI to ensure that all persons who undertake ‘relevant work’ with children have been vetted prior to taking up that role. It is now a criminal offence for a person acting on behalf of the FAI or Lakelands FC to work with children in the absence of Garda Vetting. There is an important email that has been sent this evening to all managers and coaches to update them on the new process so please read this information and address any queries to  Warm wishes Brendan Kelly Chairman and Acting Child Welfare Officer
