Child Protection Policy

Child Protection Policy

Policy Statement

We, in the Parish of Ashford & Glenealy, value and encourage the participation of children and young people in all Parish activities that enhance their spiritual, physical, emotional and social development.

We recognise the dignity and rights of all children and are committed to ensuring their protection and support. In keeping with this, we will work to do all in our power to create safe environments for children and young people in order to secure their protection and enable their full participation in the life of the Church.
