The nature of Trócaire's work creates a power differential between those employed by or working with Trócaire and programme participants. We acknowledge that the potential exists for those who work with programme participants to abuse their position of power.
Trócaire also recognises that there are specific needs, vulnerabilities and risks that exist for children and is committed to make every effort to ensure children are safe and protected both in its international programme work and outreach programmes in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Trócaire is committed to ensuring its policies are fit for purpose and that the actions of its staff, contracted parties and other third parties including visitors and volunteers are always appropriate.
We also require that our partner organisations demonstrate a similar commitment.
