Child Protection and Welfare
Cuala GAA Club is fully committed to creating and maintaining the safest possible environment for all young people who participate in our activities.
We do our utmost to take all practicable steps to safeguard children from any discernible forms of abuse, harm, discrimination or degrading treatment and we respect their rights, wishes and feelings.
Cuala has, as required under the GAA Our Games – Our Code Guidelines, a designated Children’s Officer and a Designated Liaison Officer whose appointments are central to the Clubs policy on Child Welfare. We would ask everyone involved with the club to support and cooperate with them in their important duties.
Children’s Officer Joanne Wylde – 087 6111908, firstname.lastname@example.org
Designated Liaison Officer Zita MacDermott – 087 2235677, email@example.com
If you are –
- a Juvenile member who is worried about your treatment within the Club
- an adult member or parent who has concerns about the welfare of a child
you are urged to contact the Childrens Officer. You can be assured you will be dealt with professionally and in the strictest confidence.
If you have a child welfare or protection concern relating to activities beyond the Club, you should contact the Designated Liaison Officer who has direct contact with your local HSE Children and Family Services Duty Social Worker.
