DERRY DIOCESAN CHILD SAFEGUARDING ANNUAL UPDATE

There is now a new Child Safeguarding Policy Document in place in the Diocese of Derry. This policy aims to minimise the risk to children involved in church activities. It has been drawn up to meet the requirements of the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland. A copy of the document is now available in all parish offices and will shortly be available to view or download from the diocesan website www.derrydiocese.org

If you or anyone you know has a child safeguarding concern or wishes to report an allegation directly to the statutory authorities, please contact the PSNI/local Health and Social Care Trust (Northern Ireland) or Health Service Executive/Garda, (Republic of Ireland). If contacting the Health Service Executive or local Health and Social Care Trust, ask to speak to the Duty Social Worker.
