      • or that a candidate poses a threat to others
      • or that a disclosure of sexual abuse is made to Specialisterne
      • In these circumstances Specialisterne reserves the right to communicate the relevant information to the appropriate statutory authorities (e.g. HSE, Garda Siochana etc.)

    Specialisterne Ireland reserves the right to advise that the individual contact alternative organisations, if these organisations are better placed to support their needs.
