A key part of Safeguarding Ireland’s work is enhanced public understanding of attitudes, behaviours, circumstances and systems that create vulnerability and require a safeguarding response.
PUBLIC AWARENESS CAMPAIGNS:
Safeguarding Ireland’s current Public Awareness campaign (in May 2019) focused on deepening the public understanding of safeguarding and to ‘Call it out’ which vulnerable adults are abused.

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.
