Dublin Diocesan Child Safeguarding & Protection Service Updates

With all the upheaval of the last two years, we have seen quite a number of changes in parish personnel, including clergy, Parish Safeguarding Representatives and parish staff.

I have had a number of requests asking for the relevant Handbook for each role. As our parishes slowly and cautiously move to opening, it is very important that when it comes to safeguarding children and vulnerable adults that each person is aware of their responsibilities. To this end I have attached our “Trilogy” of handbooks, Clergy, Parish Safeguarding Representatives and Parish Staff & volunteers.

All three books taking into account the changes in Garda vetting and the changes in staff in our Service, are now uploaded to the site.
