Diocese of Clonfert Child Safeguarding Policy

The Diocese of Clonfert Child Safeguarding Policy and Procedures have been prepared in conjunction with the six dioceses of the Western Province to comply with the requirements of the Children First Act 2015 and are derived from Safeguarding Children Policy and Standards for the Catholic Church in Ireland 2016 under the guidance of the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland.

All Church 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.
