Child Safeguarding Policy
We in St. Patrick’s Parish value and encourage the participation of children and young people in parish liturgies and in activities that enhance their spiritual, social and emotional development. We recognise the dignity and rights of all children and are committed to their protection and support.
In keeping with this we will work to do all in our power to create safe environments for children and young people in order to secure their protection and enable their full participation in the life of the Church.
