Investing in Children has been commissioned to introduce and develop a Quality Assurance process across Tusla to ensure that the collective voice of children and young people is embedded in rights based practice. Investing in Children Membership gives national recognition for your good practice and active inclusion of children and young people in dialogue and change.

The Investing in Children Membership Award™ recognises and celebrates examples of imaginative and inclusive practice. Investing in Children members are those services that can demonstrate a commitment to dialogue with young people that leads to change.   Full details of the awards achieved to date are available here.
