Note to Coaches within the GAA - please read below
Designated Liaison Person (DLP) - SafeGuarding 3
Every club/organisation should designate a person to be responsible for dealing with any concerns about the protection of children. The Designated Liaison Person (DLP) is responsible for reporting allegations or suspicions of child abuse to TUSLA Child and Family Agency or Social Services (NI) and/or An Garda Siochána / PSNI. It is recommended that this person is a senior club person. However, if there is difficulty identifying a separate individual to take this role, the Club Children’s Officer (CCO) can be appointed as DLP once the club/organisation is clear about the responsibilities of each role. The organisation’s child protection policy and procedures should include the name and contact details of the DLP and the responsibilities attached to the role.
The person appointed to the DLP position in a club must have completed the Safeguarding 1 - Basic Awareness Workshop in Child Welfare & Protection and should complete the Designated Liaison Person 3 hour workshop. A club may appoint the same person to both the CCO and DLP positions however best practice advises that they are kept as separate roles.
Attendees must be over 18 years of age. Attendees must be a member of a Sports Club that is affiliated to a National Governing Body of Sport (NGB)
The GAA policy surrounding the Safeguarding Course has altered. Whilst the GAA does recognise the generic course delivered by Local Sports Partnerships, the GAA have advised that all coaches within GAA (Camogie, Hurling, Football, Handball) MUST complete the GAA Safeguarding 1, 2 and 3 course.In order to book onto a GAA Safeguarding Course, please contact one of the designated GAA tutors below.
