Child Protection Policy 2020

20 July 2020

The Civil Defence Child Protection Policy is reviewed every 2 years. The updated policy is attached.

 The only significant change is the requirement to repeat the on-line TUSLA training every 5 years. This is set out on Page 5 as follows;

 (iv)         All members of Civil Defence are required to complete the TUSLA Children First eLearning training programme or an equivalent Child Protection course. The completion of this training must be recorded on the Civil Defence Volunteer Register. This training must be repeated at least every 5 years as it is a core element of the minimum training standard for Civil Defence volunteers.
