Children First Awareness Week 1st to 7th November 2021

Children First Awareness Week (CFAW) is running from 1st to 7th November.

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 our collective responsibility to keep them safe in our communities.

Children First promotes the protection of children from abuse and neglect, by setting out what individuals and organisations need to do to keep children safe, and how to deal with concerns about a child’s safety or welfare.

As part of the campaign, a new website was launched gov.ie/childrenfirst where users will find key information about Children First.
