The Child Protection Programme is based in the National Youth Council of Ireland and is funded by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs.
Our approach to this work includes:
- Building the capacity of youth organisations to safeguard and protect their children and young people.
- Developing and delivering child protection trainings to staff and volunteers at all levels of responsibility in a youth work organisation.
- Providing access for small youth work organisations to the Garda Vetting Unit through membership of the Youth Work Garda Vetting Consortium.
- Advocating on behalf of the youth work sector for measures which safeguard and protect children and young people .
