Gerry Gorman, Mountaineering Ireland’s National Children’s Officer noted: “I’m pleased to say that over the past number of months, considerable work has gone into the revision of this key policy which is now completed. This work has seen us evolve a comprehensive safeguarding policy and procedure document which details every aspect of working in the best interests of children and young people. We recently revised and added to the policy due to ongoing and updating of legislative and governmental policy changes. No doubt this will be an ongoing process as changes occur in this field. The support of both Sport NI and Sport Ireland has been much appreciated in this process also.
