The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is committed to doing everything possible to ensure children, young people and vulnerable adults are kept safe from harm.
The single most important responsibility undertaken is to ensure that anyone placed in a position of trust within SVP, paid or otherwise, which gives them direct access to children, young people or vulnerable adults, is selected with the utmost care.
Therefore Garda Vetting will be carried out for all SVP staff. In addition to this the Society has a duty of care to protect its employees, members, property and reputation. Garda vetting is part of the SVP’s recruitment and selection process.
