    Child protection

    Due to the full enactment of the Child protection bill, we have been asked to suspend all child protection training to allow for the updating of materials and presentations.

    As every service will be required to have a safeguarding statement we will be providing training early in the New Year to ensure you all have the information you need. We will keep you posted on training dates. In the meantime, there are several helpful documents on the Tusla website which you can find here.
