“Protecting children is a community effort and everybody working with or in contact with children has a duty to ensure best practice in child protection, in accordance with the Children First initiative. I wish to commend the National Youth Council of Ireland for their ongoing leadership in promoting the highest standards of child protection in youth work services including through the training programme we are recognising today.”

Representatives from a range of national organisations working with young people ,including Scouting Ireland, Foroige, the FAI and The Society of St Vincent de Paul were awarded the Certificate in Child Protection and Welfare.
