Athletics Ireland is committed to the safeguarding of all children and young people in athletics. The welfare and protection of children and young people in our sport is paramount. Our safeguarding policies have been developed as required by national legislation, policy and guidelines as outlined in Children First and by Sport Ireland. In 2011 our Athletics Ireland Code of Ethics was published ensuring that our sport is up-to-date and in line with relevant documents, best practices and child protection legislation.
If you have any concerns regarding the welfare of a child in your club or community please contact the statutory authorities (TUSLA, Child & Family Agency or the Gardai) to report your concerns.
