Child and Adult Protection Policy

We, the Irish Film Institute, are committed to safeguarding the wellbeing of children and young people while they are participating in events run by or on behalf of IFI. Our aim is to create a safe, creative and fun environment where children and young people across all levels can engage with the artform of film and where their welfare is paramount. To realise this aim, we will adhere to the recommendations of Children First: National Guidelines for the Protection and Welfare of Children, published by the Department of Heath and Children. We operate a code of good practice for all our staff, sub-contractors interns and volunteers working with children and young people at IFI or IFI events and have implemented procedures to cover the following:

  • Reporting of suspected or disclosed abuse (see Appendix 1 in the Child Protection Policy Document for categories of abuse)
  • Confidentiality
  • Recruitment and selecting staff, interns and volunteers
  • Managing and supervising staff, interns and volunteers
  • Involvement of primary carers
  • Allegations of misconduct or abuse by staff
  • Complaints and comments
  • Incidents and accidents

Our Child Protection policy, procedures and practice will be reviewed on a regular basis.
