Respond Support has a variety of policies across the organisation which governs how we deliver our services. These policies are available below.
“Throughout the year, our focus has rightly remained on service delivery and development. The opening of a new Afterschool in Athy and the opening of the Hub Café have been particular highlights.”
Albert Perris, CEO
Child Protection Policy
Respond Support is committed to promoting the highest standards of child protection in line with ‘Children First: National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children’ (2011). To achieve this, we have recently developed our child protection policy ‘Making our Communities Safe for Children’. This policy is now being implemented within the organisation and being promoted on all of our family estates.

Data Protection Policy
Data is essential to the effective delivery of both Respond! services. Respond! and Respond Support hold data for a variety of purposes, which largely relates to the tenancy relationship that we undertake in addition to the provision of care and support services and in the context of the administration of the Company. Data protection is about creating a framework for the lawful processing and protection of personal data. It is the means by which an individual’s fundamental right to privacy is safeguarded.
Community Development Strategy
Our Community Development Strategy aims to support integrated local economic and social development through programmes that counter disadvantage while promoting the inclusion and participation of people and communities. The nature of the Community Development Strategy is progressive, moving communities from one stage of development to the next through the use of programmed events, education and applied community resources.
