Child Safeguarding

CHILD SAFEGUARDING POLICY STATEMENT

The Archdiocese of Dublin recognises and upholds the dignity and rights of all children, is committed to ensuring their safety and well-being and will work in partnership with parents/guardians to do this. The Archdiocese recognises each child as a gift from God, and values and encourages the participation of children in all activities that enhance their spiritual, physical, emotional, intellectual and social development.

All diocesan personnel (including clergy, religious, staff and volunteers) have a responsibility to safeguard children through promoting their welfare, health and development in a safe and caring environment that supports their best interests and prevents abuse.
