Safeguarding Standards and Guidance
In 2016 the National Board for safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland introduced a new set of Standards and guidance for all constituent members of the Catholic Church in Ireland.Click on the link below to view.
In 2017, the western Province Dioceses including the Archdiocese of Tuam and the Dioceses of Achonry, Clonfert, Elphin, Killala and Galway-Kilmacduagh-Kilfenora produced a ‘Safeguarding Children Parish Handbook’ which is a subset of the guidance produced by the NBSCCCI. This is a valuable practical resource for all who work with children at parish level. However, it is not a stand-alone document and should be used in conjunction with ‘Safeguarding Children Policy and Standards for the Catholic Church in Ireland.
