Recently, Pope Francis said:
Families need to know that the Church is making every effort
to protect their children. They should also know that they
have every right to turn to the Church with full confidence,
for it is a safe and secure home.
There are two Safeguarding Representatives in the parish. They meet twice a month. They raise awareness of what Safeguarding is and ensure that contact details of the Diocesan Designated Liaison Person, Tusla, Clontarf Garda Station and Towards Healing are clearly displayed.
They distribute relevant forms, including Garda Vetting Forms, to Volunteers. They work with Fr. Martin and the Parish Pastoral Council to ensure that Diocesan Safeguarding Policies and Procedures are followed. They complete an annual Parish Safeguarding Audit and submit it to the Child Safeguarding & Protection Service of the Diocese.
