Tusla - Ireland's Child & Family Agency

National Children’s Charter

On Wednesday, 28 June 2017, Tusla – Child and Family Agency, launched National Children and Young people’s Charters. Tusla worked with Dr Carmel Corrigan, and a group of children and young people to develop charters that reflect the views and preferences of children and young people. 

The Children and Young People’s Charters aim to:

  • Give children/ young people and their families’ greater clarity about the quality of services they can expect from all Tusla staff members, how Tusla staff will interact with them to find solutions, and the principles that underpin this work. 
  • Provide all staff with a clear guide and reminder of what is important to children and young people with whom we work. 
  • The charters follow the development of Tusla’s ‘Toward the Development of a Participation Strategy for Children and Young People: National Guidance and Local Implementation’ which identified the development of a Children’s Charter as a priority action.

The Charters are available to download below.
