The Role of the Mandated Person Briefing delivered by Tusla

Mandated Persons have a legal obligation to report child protection concerns which reach or exceed the legally defined threshold of harm in the Children First Act 2015 and to cooperate with Tusla in the assessment of child protection concerns about children who have been the subject of a mandated report.

This briefing session is open to Mandated Persons* only and is ideal for anyone new to the ELC and SAC sector or if you would like to update your knowledge on the role of the mandated person.

Date: Monday, 22 February 2021
Time: 2.30pm – 4.30pm

*Mandated persons are people who have contact with children and/or families who, by virtue of their qualifications, training and experience, are in a key position to help protect children from harm. Mandated persons include key professionals working with children in the education, health, justice, youth and childcare sectors. The Children First Act 2015, Schedule 2, provides a full list of people who are classified as mandated persons.

The Role of the Designated Liaison Person Briefing delivered by Tusla

Both public and private organisations that provide services for children and families should consider appointing a Designated Liaison Person (DLP). The DLP will be a resource to any staff member who has child protection or welfare concerns. DLPs are responsible for ensuring that organisational reporting procedures are followed correctly and promptly and act as a liaison person with outside agencies. 

The DLP should be knowledgeable about child protection and should be provided with any training considered necessary to fulfil this role.
The DLP is responsible for ensuring that reporting procedures within your organisation are followed, so that child welfare and protection concerns are referred promptly to Tusla.

This briefing session is open to those in the DLP role only and is ideal for anyone new to the role or who requires refresher information.

It is important to note that this briefing session is not DLP training.

Date: Monday, 1 March 2021
Time: 2.30pm – 4.30pm
