Welcome

Welcome to the website of Safeguarding Ireland. We are a multi-agency and inter-sectoral body. We were formally established by the HSE in December 2015 in recognition of the fact that safeguarding vulnerable people from abuse is a matter that cannot be addressed by any one agency working in isolation, but rather by a number of agencies and individuals working collaboratively with a common goal.

Safeguarding Ireland brings together key players in public services, legal and financial services, the health and social care professions, regulatory authorities and NGOs representing older people, people with disabilities and carers. We were named the National Safeguarding Committee until summer 2018, and recently renamed SAFEGUARDING IRELAND.
