Our Purpose, Vision and Mission


The National Board was established to provide advice, services and assistance to constituent members of the Catholic Church in furtherance of the development of the safeguarding of children within the Roman Catholic Church on the island of Ireland. The National Board also has a role in monitoring Church bodies compliance with civil legislation and constitutional imperatives, policy and best practice; and it is required to report upon activities of the Company and the cooperation which it receives in respect of such activities to the extent that such activities are always and in all respects carried out with due regard to the doctrines and applicable Canon Law of the Roman Catholic Church
