Patrickswell-Ballybrown Parish values and encourages participation in Parish Activities by children and persons who may be vulnerable.

Patrickswell-Ballybrown Parish wishes to ensure that families can have confidence that all of their members are safe and respected, when participating in the life of the Church. We do this collectively by committing ourselves to good and safe practices in accordance with Diocesan Safeguarding Policies. These are consistent with all relevant legislation and the Standards of the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland.

Comprehensive information is available on the Diocesan Website and we welcome suggestions and feedback which can help us improve our safeguarding arrangements.
