We should be proud of what is good in that tradition.However,we also need to learn from the times when people and services were not person centred in their approach and peoplewere not treated with respect and dignity.Read More
Ensuring that Children and Vulnerable People Feel Safe and Respected
The Diocese of Limerick seeks to continuously improve our safeguarding practices. We aim to ensure that children and people who may be vulnerable feel safe and respected in all of their involvement with the Church and that all those involved in ministry are aware of their responsibilities and feel supported.
The summer months have been busy for the Diocesan Safeguarding Service as it completes a full review of all the procedures and guidance for Parishes and Diocesan activities with children. These will be published later in the year and a new dedicated ‘Safeguarding’ section of the Diocesan website will present the information in accessible format. A special edition of our Safeguarding Newsletter will be circulated when this is live.Read More
