Child Protection

If your volunteer role includes working with children and young people, your volunteer project should have a tailored child protection policy which you must read and uphold at all times. This operates to protect the volunteer as well as the child. You should also be provided with Child Protection Training.

The government body that is responsible for child protection is Tusla. For the most up-to-date information about child protection please go to their website.

If there is no Child Protection Policy in your volunteer project, it is necessary to familiarise yourself with the Children First document.
