My events are for children. What do I need in order to comply with the “Children First Act 2015”?
If your festival includes events/activities for children, the provider of that activity must:
- have a Child Safeguarding Policy developed with robust procedures that conforms with the law, based on Children First Act 2015,
- be Garda vetted,
- have their own insurance cover and:
- have indemnified Waterford City & County Council against any claims.
You as an organiser need to have Lost Children Policy in place.
