In God’s Image V2, Safeguarding in the Catholic Church in Scotland

Our Safeguarding Culture
Everyone in the Catholic Church in Scotland – especially those in
positions of leadership and responsibility – values the lives,
wholeness, safety and well-being of each individual person within
God’s purpose for everyone.
We seek to uphold the highest safeguarding standards in our
relationships with people of all ages who are involved with the
Church and its organisations.
As a Church community, we accept that it is the responsibility of all
of us – ordained, professed, employed and volunteer lay people – to
work together to uphold these safeguarding standards that have
been designed to protect children and vulnerable adults from abuse
or harm.

Please report any safeguarding concerns to the parish priest or parish safeguarding coordinator. You should not ignore your concerns or assume that someone else will report it.

Please contact our Parish Priest (contact form), Parish Safeguarding Coordinator (see poster inside the church) or directly Archdiocesan Safeguarding Office.
