Safeguarding Children

Child Protection Policy

Doora Barefield Parish values and encourages the participation of children and young people in parish liturgies and activities that enhance their spiritual, physical, emotional, social and intellectual development, and will work in a partnership way with parents at all times.

All of us share the serious responsibility and privilege of trying to ensure that our children grow up in an environment where they are treasured, respected and loved and are free from danger of any form of abuse. We want our children and young people to be respected, included and have a voice.

The diocese of Killaloe takes its commitment to safeguarding children very seriously, and has published policies and procedures in accordance with Standards and Guidance Document for the Catholic Church in Ireland. You can view these HERE, and a summary of it is available in our church porches. Further information about the diocesan ‘Safeguarding Children Services’ contacts and supports HERE.
