It is the policy of Donegal Youth Service to safeguard the welfare of all children and young people in our services by protecting them from all forms of abuse. We are committed to providing a safe space for children and young people to grow, develop, learn, and have fun.
The National Quality Standards Framework for youth work (NQSF) was introduced in January 2011. This is primarily a support, development and assessment tool that provides services and organisations with the opportunity to articulate through a common language their youth work practice. Donegal Youth Service initially participated in the pilot phase in 2009 and successfully completed the first three year cycle of the NQSF in 2014.
Donegal Youth Service would advise anyone who has an issue with the work that we do to communicate that directly to us or if necessary use the complaints procedure that we have in place.
