Child Welfare Information

Shankill GAA Club is fully committed to creating and maintaining the safest possible environment for all young people who participate in our activities. We do our utmost to take all practicable steps to safeguard children from any discernible forms of abuse, harm, discrimination or degrading treatment and we respect their rights, wishes and feelings. Shankill has, as required under the GAA Our Games our Code Guidelines, a designated Children’s Officer and a Designated Liaison Officer whose appointments are central to the Clubs policy on Child Welfare. We would ask everyone involved with the club to support and cooperate with them in their important duties. 

If you are a Juvenile member who is worried about your treatment within the club or an adult member or parent who has any concerns about the welfare of a child, contact the below Officers.
