Safeguarding Policy Statement in the Diocese of Derry

As a constituent member of the Catholic Church in Ireland, we recognise and uphold the dignity and rights of all children, are committted to ensuring their safety and well-being, and will work in partnership with parents/guardians to do this.

We recognise each child as a gift from God, and we value and encourage the participation of children in all activities that enhance their spiritual, physical, emotional, intellectual and social development.

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.
