A public awareness campaign on ‘Planning Ahead & Public Understanding of Safeguarding’ will commence on Monday next, October 15th and will run for two weeks - October 15-27th 2018.

Safeguarding Ireland’s social media accounts have changed to reflect the organisation’s new name. The contents of the former National Safeguarding Committee accounts have been incorporated into the new accounts and the details are now: Twitter – @safeguardingire and Facebook – @safeguardingire.

This campaign is to ‘kick off’ ongoing public awareness work on safeguarding for the coming nine months, in which time there will be ongoing opportunities to develop understanding of safeguarding, what is being done and what needs to be done.
