Designated Liaison Person

2 People booked this course

Every organisation both public and private that is providing services for children or that is in regular contact with children should identify a Designated Liaison Person to act as a liaison with outside agencies and a resource person to any staff member or volunteer who has child protection concerns. The Designated Liaison Person is responsible for ensuring that the standard reporting procedure is followed, so that suspected cases of child abuse or neglect are referred promptly to the designated person in the Child and Family Agency or in the event of an emergency and the unavailability of the Child and Family Agency to An Garda Siochána. With this in mind Social Care Training Ireland has put together a training course designed for anyone who is currently working in the role of the Designated Liaison Person or any individual who may be moving into this role.  

The training is designed to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to perform the role of a Designated Liaison Person. Participants attending this course will learn the following:

  • The duties and responsibilities of a Designated Liaison Person
  • Standard Reporting Procedure
  • Writing Reports and Record Keeping
  • Information to be included in a report
  • Procedure to be followed for cases not reported to the Child and Family Agency or An Garda Síochána
  • Legal Protection
  • Freedom of Information

After attending this training participants will have gained knowledge in all aspects of the role of Designated Liaison Person. Child Protection continues to be the responsibility of all staff working within an organisation and the Designated Liaison Person acts as the go to person for staff if they are concerned but in terms of their responsibility for Child Protection it will be the same as everyone else.
