The Children First Act (2015) has been fully commenced. This brings new and additional responsibilities on organisations and staff with regard to child protection and welfare matters. The NCSE has updated its procedures for reporting concerns to comply with these requirements and has also prepared an information guide to accompany the procedures. Both these documents, along with the Tusla reporting form, can be found below.
Organisations are required to publish a Child Safeguarding Statement. The NCSE statement can be found here.
