Cuala GAA Club is fully committed to creating and maintaining the safest possible environment for all young people who participate in our activities. We do our utmost to take all practicable steps to safeguard children from any discernable forms of abuse, harm, discrimination or degrading treatment and we respect their rights, wishes and feelings. Cuala has, as required under the GAA Our Games – Our Code Guidelines, a designated Children’s Officer and a Designated Liaison Officer (details below) whose appointments are central to the Clubs policy on Child Welfare. We would ask everyone involved with the club to support and cooperate with them in their important duties.
Designated Liaison Officer
If you are –
a Juvenile member who is worried about your treatment within the club
an adult member or parent who has any concerns about the welfare of a child
you are urged to contact the Childrens Officer. You can be assured you will be dealt with professionally and in the strictest confidence.
If you have a child welfare or protection concern relating to activities beyond the Club, you should contact the Designated Liaison Officer IMMEDIATELY (see contact details above) who has direct contact with your local HSE Children and Family Services Duty Social Worker.
