Procedures to Safeguard Children From Harm

Our Child Safeguarding Statement has been developed in line with requirements under the Children First Act 2015, Children First: National Guidance for the protection and Welfare of Children (2017), and TUSLA’s Child Safeguarding a Guide for Policy, Procedure and Practice.

In addition to the procedures listed in our risk assessment, the following procedures support our intention to safeguard children while they are availing of our service:

  • Procedures for the management of allegations of abuse or misconduct against workers/ volunteers of a child availing of our service
  • Procedures for the safe recruitment and selection of workers and volunteers to work with children
  • Procedures for provision of and access to child safeguarding training and information, including the identification of the occurrence of harm
  • Procedure for reporting of child protection or welfare concerns to TUSLA
  • Procedure for maintaining list of the persons in the relevant service who are the mandated persons;
  • Procedure for appointing a relevant person

All procedures listed are available upon request.
