All Tusla registered Childminders must have Garda Vetting, but best practice would indicate that all Childminders and their emergency backup contact should be Garda Vetted.
To apply for Garda Vetting, you must contact Barnardos’ Vetting Service directly.
Alternatively, Barnardos can be contacted on:
Phone: 021 4547060
If a Childminder is a member of Early Childhood Ireland they can be vetted as members through
Early Childhood Ireland.
