Governance and Child Safeguarding Issues in Scouting Ireland: Tusla and Scouting Ireland
Mr. Pat Smyth:
A plan is in place to allow Scouting Ireland to assure everybody that it will be compliant. It is the responsibility of Scouting Ireland to ensure that it has the processes in place. We have identified gaps in policy, procedure and practice and brought them to its attention in our letter. Scouting Ireland is working towards the delivery of that.
