Sex Offender Risk Assessment & Management (SORAM)

Sex Offender Risk Assessment and Management (SORAM) supports enhanced levels of co-operation and co-ordination between key statutory organisations involved in managing the risks posed to the community by convicted sex offenders and in safeguarding the welfare of children. 

SORAM applies to sex offenders who are subject to Part 2 of the Sex Offenders Act, 2001 and under the supervision of the Probation Service and is operated at both a National and Local. 

The National SORAM Steering Group comprises of representatives from An Garda Síochána, The Probation Service, Child and Family Agency (Tusla), HSE (Cosc), The Irish Prison Service and Local Authority Housing.

The 28 Local SORAM Teams have responsibility for public protection through the management of the risk posed by sex offenders living in the community. The Local SORAM Teams are supported in their work by the National SORAM Office which is a multi-agency Office made up of the same agencies represented on the Local SORAM Teams.
