Child Safeguarding Statement

The Children First Act 2015 requires that NSCDA (Operations) Ltd on The Sport Ireland Campus  publish a Child Safeguarding Statement. This is a written statement that specifies the services being provided and the principles and procedures to be observed to ensure that a child availing of our services is safe from ‘harm’.  It also includes an assessment of any risk of ‘harm’ and specifies the procedures in place to manage these. 

Our Risk Assessment


We have assessed that we have the right people, policies & procedures and practice in place to help protect children from harm.  Where we need to improve, our risk assessment has identified the necessary actions required.
