Safeguarding Children (Child Protection and Welfare)
What is the Code of Ethics? The Code of Ethics is for the benefit of everyone involved in children's sport (children, parents / guardians, sports leaders', etc). By following the principles, policy and practical guidelines contained in the Code, sports leaders are playing their part in providing an enjoyable and safe environment in which children can lean and thrive
Offaly Sports Partnership are delighted to host Safeguarding Children (Child Protection and Welfare) training: -
- Safeguarding 1 educates participants on the implementation of best practice in protecting the welfare of children involved in sport
- Safeguarding 2 educates the Club Children’s Officer on the function of their role in the club and supports the implementation of best practice in the club. Participants also receive a Club Children’s Officer Action Planning document as part of the training
- Safeguarding 3 educates the Designated Liaison Person on the function of their role in the club which is the reporting of allegations or suspicions of child abuse to TULSA Child and Family Agency or Social Services (NI) and/or An Garda Siochána / PSNI. The organisation’s child protection policy and procedures should include the name and contact details of the Designated Liaison Person and the responsibilities attached to the role
