A National Safeguarding Office was established by the Health Service Executive in the Republic of Ireland in December 2015. This was in accordance with the HSE’s Social Care Division Safeguarding Vulnerable Persons at Risk of Abuse – National Policy and Procedures. More information about this office is available at Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults – HSE.ie.
