Tusla - Ireland's Child & Family Agency


The Child Safeguarding Statement Compliance Unit (CSSCU) is the dedicated Unit within Tusla set up to ensure that all providers’ Child Safeguarding Statements (CSS) are compliant with the requirements of the Children First Act 2015. All providers of relevant services which are in operation for greater than three months are legally required to have a Child Safeguarding Statement in place. The unit was established in March 2018 to provide both compliance support and enforcement. The CSSCU is responsible for the enforcement of section 11 of the Children First Act 2015 and maintaining the Public Register of Non-Compliance.
