Tusla - Ireland's Child & Family Agency

What does it mean to be a mandated person?

The Children First Act 2015 places a legal obligation on certain groups of people to report concerns of child harm to Tusla – Child and Family Agency. These people are known as ‘mandated persons’.

From 11th December 2017, mandated persons (including foster carers) must:

  1. Report child protection and welfare concerns to Tusla;
  2. Help Tusla, if requested, in assessing a reported concern.
