Adult Safeguarding

In September 2021, the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference and AMRI (Association of Missionaries and Religious Leaders of Ireland) made a request to the National Board to draft a template adult safeguarding policy and training for the Catholic Church in Ireland. As part of our work on this area we in the Board engaged with a range of personnel, inside and outside the Church to ensure that a vulnerable adult policy and associated guidance and training suggested met civil and criminal legislative requirements, best practice standards and was in line with the ethos and canon law of the Church.

To do this a member of the National office team was appointed to project manage the work. A project plan was developed with timelines to chart the course of this work which was due to be completed by September 2022. This plan was then presented to the Board for their approval. 

The final outcome of this project can be accessed by contacting
