Safeguarding

Child Safeguarding Policy Statement of the Constituent Members of the Catholic Church in Ireland

Procedures in use by the Marist Fathers are based on guidance developed by the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland (NBSCCCI). 

As a constituent member of the Catholic Church in Ireland we recognise and uphold the dignity and rights of all children and are committed to ensuring their safety and wellbeing, 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, volunteers and any other Church personnel) have a responsibility to safeguard children through promoting their welfare, health and development in a safe and caring environment which supports their best interests and prevents abuse.
