Safeguarding Ireland’s National Advisory Committee (NSAC) includes almost 40 organisations in Ireland from across the health, social, financial and justice sectors.
This broad group meets quarterly to discuss and share how to progress better safeguarding and to reduce adult abuse in all forms. At each meeting one member presents on actions they are taking to further adult safeguarding.
In July 2022 the Banking & Payments Federation Ireland (BPFI) made a presentation on the banking sector’s activities to support customers in need of additional support, including specific actions to help customers in vulnerable circumstances move their payment accounts.
Discussion at the group highlighted the importance of supporting customers, old and young, in a manner that protects them from financial abuse and respects their independence.
