This first national child welfare audit has been created to enable all of the Gaelic Games’ Associations – GAA, LGFA, Camogie Association, Rounders and Handball – capture relevant data that shall inform us as to our adherence to child welfare and protection policies and particularly how we fulfill our safeguarding responsibilities at Club level.
The Audit is two-fold in that all Clubs through their Club Children’s Officer and Counties via their County Children’s Officer shall complete separate audits online.
Details on both audits can be found at the below links:
Our preference is that one response is received from Clubs incorporating all child welfare data relevant to the GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association, as appropriate to each Club.
All County Children’s Officers of the GAA, LGFA and CamogieAssociation are however required to make an individual response on behalf of their own Association and County as we wish to liaise with these Officers and identify if additional supports are required to enable them fulfil their roles in their respective Associations.
Additional information on the Audit is contained below and queries may be forwarded if necessary to firstname.lastname@example.org
Both the Club and County Child Welfare Audits should be completed and submitted by the Club/County Children’s Officer by July 6th 2017.
