Parish Child Protection Committee
Each parish has been asked by Bishop Smith to nominate two representatives who will help the parish to develop awareness of best practice in working with children.
They oversee the implementation of the parish "Safeguarding Children" policy. They act as a support to parish volunteers, liaise with the relevant civil and church authorities, and carry out an annual audit to present to the Parish Priest. Whenever concerns or complaints are received at parish level, they are brought to the attention of the Diocesan Designated Officer by the parish representative for referral to the appropriate authorities.
Our Child protection representatives can be contacted through the Parish Office.
