This policy outlines the procedures and establishes the responsibilities of Civil Defence members with regard to the protection of children when working with, or when brought into contact with, children whilst engaged in Civil Defence duties and exercises. Each Civil Defence Unit must have a Designated Liaison Person (DLP) to act as a liaison with outside agencies and as a resource person to any member who has child protection concerns.

The policy has been developed in line with the principles of Children First: National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children (Department of Children and Youth Affairs 2017).
