    CHILD SAFEGUARDING POLICY  STATEMENT

     

    We in the Catholic Parish of Our Lady of Good Counsel, Mourne Road, Drimnagh recognise the personal dignity and rights of children. Our prime concern is the safety and welfare of the children in our care. All who share in the parish's ministry with children are committed to good pastoral practice. We aim to protect the children in our care from harm by developing an awareness of the practices that safeguard them. If we consider any child to be at risk we will inform the statutory authorities and help them in any way possible.
