Safeguarding Policy Statement

 
 

As children form a fundamental part of our inclusive community of friends and family, Holy Trinity Rathmines embraces Safeguarding Trust (the Church of Ireland's Child protection policy) as a way of creating and maintaining a safe environment where all our children are protected from any type of abuse and feel happy and safe in exploring faith and sharing life as we learn to follow Jesus.  It is important that they understand how and are confident in, raising any concerns they may have with members in our community.

In putting in place and following all of the great policies and practices in Safeguarding Trust we are also ensuring that all of our members involved in children’s ministry are appointed and trained to operate within good practice frameworks and are protected from unfounded allegations.

As a community we are committed to reviewing our policy on regular basis.

In the United Dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough, Olive Good (Regulator for Safeguarding Trust) is responsible for the training of leaders and panel members.

All of our groups for children and young people comply with the Safeguarding Trust: The Church of Ireland’s Child Protection Policy.
