We recognise and value the vital part that parishes have in safeguarding by creating and maintaining safe environments for all.  The Diocese has created specific download resources for you to use in your Parish.  The resources are personalised to suit the needs of the Diocese / Parishes.

The forms will be updated every two years, unless any new legislative changes require earlier updates.


The Diocese takes its guidance for children from the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland (NBSCCCI) See safeguarding.ie
