The Archdiocese has created specific download resources for Safeguarding Children. You are welcome to use these in your Parish. The Archdioceses takes its guidance from the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland www.safeguarding.ie.

The Archdioceses has personalised the resources to suit the needs of the parishes. The forms will be updated every 2 years, unless any new legislative changes require earlier updates.
