Child Protection – Understanding and developing child protection policy

For groups and artists working with children and young people, child protection is a primary concern. With this awareness can also come a fear of doing things incorrectly or not according to legislation. It can also raise a lot of questions.

Does our organisation have a child protection policy? Who is our designated child protection officer? What do I do with a child protection concern? 


Daragh Kennedy from the National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) child protection training unit will deliver the 4-hour session on behalf of Kildare Arts Service, which aims to highlight awareness of child protection and the importance of developing a child protection policy.
