Parish Child and Vulnerable Persons Safeguarding
The Parish adheres strictly to the Safeguarding procedures as administered and monitored by the Diocesan Safeguarding Office (previously known as the Diocesan Child Protection Office). All volunteers in contact with young people and vulnerable persons through parish based groups have a CRB clearance. Volunteers working with sacramental programmes, crèche, children’s liturgy, all ministers of the Eucharist (including those who go to the hospital) and any other relevant groups are included in this requirement. From October 2009 CRB clearance was replaced by a vetting and barring system run by the Independent Safeguarding Authority. Compliance with this procedure is a legal requirement. When new members are commissioned by Mgr Madders they enter into the checking process and are cleared by the Safeguarding Representative before taking up their new responsibilities.
Upon volunteering your services to the parish, would you please then contact Mr Mike Roycroft who is the Parish Safeguarding Representative.
