Launch of 1st National Children First Awareness Week:
“Everyone has a responsibility to keep children safe”
Today marks the start of the first ever national Children First Awareness Week (1st – 7th November 2021).
The aim of the week is to raise awareness of Children First and remind wider society, including organisations working with children and young people, of their collective responsibilities to keep children safe in our communities.
As part of the campaign, a new government website has been created — gov.ie/childrenfirst — where users will find all the key information about Children First.
A series of information videos featuring a Garda, public health nurse and social worker will further spread awareness of the work being done across society to keep children safe..
