Safeguarding of Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults
We, St Patricks Parish, Mayobridge, in the Diocese of Dromore, value and encourage the participation of children, young people and vulnerable adults in all church activities that enhance their spiritual, physical, emotional and social development.
We recognise and uphold the dignity and rights of children, young people and vulnerable adults within our faith community and we are committed to their protection and support in a way that promotes their human dignity and integrity as children of God.
We undertake to do all in our power in our parish in the Diocese of Dromore to create safe environments for children, young people and vulnerable adults.
We acknowledge that all involved in working with children, young people and vulnerable adults have a special duty of care towards them.
We undertake to put in place, implement and sustain adequate resources through which this care is put into effect so that their rights as active participants in the life of the Church are upheld.
We review our policy and procedures on an ongoing basis.
