Safeguarding Children Policy


“We in the Parish of Laragh value and encourage the participation of children and young people in all diocesan and parish activities promoting their spiritual, emotional, physical and social development.

Recognising the dignity and rights of all children, we will undertake to do all in our power to create a safe environment for children and young people in order to facilitate their full participation in the life of the Church.

Our children’s welfare is paramount.

All Church personnel are expected to comply with the diocesan safeguarding children policies and procedures.
