Safeguarding Office Publishes Vulnerable Adult Policy

The Diocesan Safeguarding Office has published its Vulnerable Adult Policy & Guidance Document.

Vulnerable-Adults-CoverThe Diocese recognises that there are many people with whom Church personnel have contact who require special care and attention. It values and encourages the participation of vulnerable adults in all parish liturgies and activities that enhance their spiritual, physical, emotional, intellectual and social development. We believe that all Church personnel, including priests, religious, staff and volunteers must carry out their ministry respecting the rights of the individual in line with gospel values and human rights legislation.

The Policy and Guidance Document can be found in the Safeguarding section of the website or directly by clicking on the adjacent image.
