Patricia Rickard Clarke, 2019
Safeguarding Ireland Independent Chairperson
Safeguarding Ireland brings together 30 key organisations in public services, legal and financial services, the health and socialcare professions, regulatory authorities and NGOs representing older people, people with disabilities and carers.
All have come together with one objective in mind – to ensure that adults who may be vulnerable are safeguarded.
Safeguarding Ireland does not deal with specific cases of abuse, or alleged abuse.
The HSE has a social work service that you can contact if you have a concern about a vulnerable adult who may be at risk of abuse. There are nine teams located throughout the country. You can find information on how to get in touch with them on the Contact page.
