National Youth Council of Ireland
(brief outline of what our service is, what we do and our commitment to safeguard children)
The National Youth Council of Ireland is the representative body for voluntary youth organisations in Ireland. It uses its collective experience to act on issues that impact on young people.
NYCI is not a youth work organisation that provides direct services to children and young people. We do engage with young people in a variety of different ways, the range of activities which children and young people might be involved with NYCI includes the following:
The National Youth Council of Ireland is committed to the protection of children and young people with whom we work and advocate for, and to promoting good practice within our organisation.
NYCI is committed to promoting the rights of the child including the participation of children and young people in matters that affect them.
NYCI is committed to adherence to Children First National Guidance 2017 and the Children First Act 2015.
The best interests and the welfare of the child is the paramount consideration (paramountcy principle) underpinning all NYCI interactions and decisions.
NYCI has carried out an assessment of any potential of risk of harm to a child while availing of our services. The areas of risk and the procedures identified to address these areas have been identified.
NYCI’s Child Safeguarding Statement has been developed in line with requirements under the Children First Act 2015, the Children First: National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children, and Tusla’s Child Safeguarding: A Guide for Policy, Procedure and Practice. In addition to the procedures listed in our risk assessment, the following procedures support our intention to safeguard children while they are availing of our service (see NYCI’s Child Protection Policy for details on the following procedures):
All procedures listed are available upon request.
We recognise that implementation is an ongoing process. Our service is committed to the implementation of this Child Safeguarding Statement and the procedures that support our intention to keep children safe from harm while availing of our service. This Child Safeguarding Statement will be reviewed in September 2023 or sooner where there has been a material change in any matter to which the statement refers.
