October: Safeguarding Month.
Children's First Act 2015.
The Archdiocese recognises and upholds the dignity and rights of vulnerable adults and is committed to safeguarding all our members.
All Clerics and Religious are mandated persons. The Children's First Act 2015 places a legal obligation on them to report child protection to Tusla – Child and Family Agency. These mandated persons must also assist Tusla, on request, in the assessment of child protection concerns about children who have been the subject of a mandated report.
