“It is the policy of the Church of Ireland to set standards for the welfare of all children sharing in its ministry with a view to protecting them from physical, sexual and emotional harm and neglect”.

Large numbers of children visit the Church and Centre of Kilternan Parish for worship, Messy Church, Sunday Club, and other recreational and educational purposes each week. The Church’s ministry to them is a priority for the Parish.

Safeguarding Trust means that our children are protected from all kinds of abuse, and that the parish is consciously promoting their general safety and welfare.

Children’s ministry is only possible because of the commitment of adults who are prepared to work with children and who have been selected, appointed and trained in Safeguarding Trust to feel confident that they are adhering to good practices and that they are protected from unfounded allegations.

Should you have a concern, suspicion or allegation regarding child welfare in ministry to children in this parish please report directly toa member of the parish panel, listed below, who may report directly to a designated officer of the HSE (normally the duty social worker) or a member of An Garda Síochánaif the matter is within the panel’s remit.
