Children First staff presentation
5th July 2018
Children First is the term used to encompass a number of areas within child protection in Ireland:
- the principle that children must be protected,
- the framework and legislation surrounding that principle,
- the implementation of that principle by organisations and individuals.
Child protection is everyone’s responsibility. However, those working in the healthcare sector have particular obligations, even if they don’t work directly with children.
Today Barbara Cullinan from the HSE’s Children First National Office gave a presentation to our staff on their roles and responsibilities under the legislation.
