Description

The National Standards for the Protection and Welfare of Children have been developed by the Health Information and Quality Authority (the Authority) to support continuous improvements in the care and protection of children in receipt of HSE child protection and welfare services. These outcome-based Standards provide a framework for the development of child-centred services in Ireland that protect children and promote their welfare. The Health Act 2007 establishes a statutory function for the setting of standards by the Authority.
