Notice of Review of Safeguarding Practice in the Archdiocese of Cashel & Emly


The Archdiocese of Cashel & Emly, like all other dioceses in the country, is about to undergo a national review of Safeguarding Children practices. The National Board for Safeguarding Children (NBSCCI) will conduct an audit of the Safeguarding Children policies, procedures and practices of the  Archdiocese of Cashel & Emly on 20th and 21st  May 2013.


The review of safeguarding practice involves discussions with key safeguarding personnel and a review of case papers and other relevant documentation held by the Archdiocese.


In addition the NBSCCCI will seek the views of the civil authorities, An Garda Siochana and the HSE, to ensure that notifications of all allegations have been made and that working relationships exist which promote the welfare of children.


If you are a survivor of past abuse, who has not yet come forward, you are now invited to do so either to the Garda Siochana, the HSE or to the designated person of the Diocese.


In line with Safeguarding Policies all allegations of abuse are reported to the civil authorities. Should you be aware of any current risk to children you are advised to report it directly to the Gardai or the HSE.
