Welcome to the website of the National Safeguarding Committee (NSC). The Committee is a multi-agency and inter-sectoral body with an independent chair. It was established by the HSE in December 2014 in recognition of the fact that safeguarding vulnerable people from abuse is a matter that cannot be addressed by any one agency working in isolation, but rather by a number of agencies and individuals working collaboratively with a common goal. The NSC brings together key players in public services, legal and financial services, the health and social care professions, regulatory authorities and NGOs representing older people, people with disabilities and carers. All have come together with one objective in mind – to ensure that adults who may be vulnerable are safeguarded.
Patricia Rickard-Clarke, CHAIR.
