Launch of the Safeguarding Children and Young People in Mayo Initiative

Launch of the Safeguarding Children and Young People in Mayo Initiative

The formal launch of the Safeguarding Children and Young People in Mayo Initiative will be staged on Friday, October 1 next at 2:30pm.

This initiative consists of a series of on-line workshops and resources designed to assist community and voluntary organisations across Mayo with different aspects of child safeguarding, including sessions on Children First, Child Safeguarding Statements and a briefing for Designated Liaison Persons.

Further sessions on awareness of domestic abuse, diversity and inclusion of children and dealing with bullying will follow throughout the year.

The Child Safeguarding in Mayo Initiative is a partnership of agencies who are members of the Mayo Children and Young Persons Services Committee (CYPSC).

This partnership is committed to ensuring that children and young people participate in safe and positive environments in services, clubs and activities provided in County Mayo.
