There are loads of ways to get involved with VDP from day one. You can audition for the Panto, and join the Fundraising team and certain activities like flat decorating straight away!

However for most activities you need specific SVP Garda Vetting, Vulnerable adult protection training, or Vulnerable child protection training.

Just follow these four steps, and you can get involved in any activity!

Step 1

Sign up to the mailing list by finding us during freshers week, or by just sending a quick email to

step 2

Come to one of our intro nights, where you can hear about all of the different activities from the leaders. If you're interested in activities that need them, you can sign up for vulnerable adult or vulnerable child protection training.

Step 3

You will be invited to attend the training, where you fill out your SVP membership.

Step 4

You will get an email with a link to fill out your online vetting. Once you fill it out, you will hear back within a week and you're good to go!

If you're having trouble with any of this, just email Phil at for info!
