Advancing Children's Rights through the Criminal Law (Sexual Offences) Bill

Published date:

The Children’s Rights Alliance warmly welcomes this Bill and views it as a landmark Bill for the protection of children and young people in Ireland. As children and young people increasingly spend time online and with technology evolving quickly, this Bill closes gaps and loopholes in current legislation, which leave children exposed to abuse, in particular through grooming and solicitation for the purpose of sexual abuse.
