Information Clinics | Child Safeguarding Guidelines for the Arts Sector

In line with Children First National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children (2017), the Arts Council seeks to ensure that those in receipt of funding or grant-aid, whose work brings them into contact with children, are meeting their obligations under the Children First Act 2015.

The Arts Council will host a number of information clinics to support funded artists and arts organisations in ensuring their policies and procedures are up to date. The clinics will also provide information on the introduction of the Arts Council’s quality assurance framework and self-audit tool.

The Council has engaged the services of Clara Learning to facilitate these sessions which will take place in various venues around the country in September and October 2018.
