Gaisce would like to remind PALs that they should continue to be alert and vigilant to the possibility that a child protection concern may arise in relation to participants they come into contact with online or when using any of the virtual contact platforms. In that regard they should follow their own organisation’s reporting procedures and report to their Designated Liaison Person. If contacting the DLP is not possible the PAL should report to the Child and Family Agency (TUSLA) and alert the DLP as soon as it is possible to do so. If the PAL feels that a young person is in immediate danger, they should contact An Garda Siochana immediately.
