Policy of the Dominican Friars

We in the Irish Dominican Province recognise and uphold and dignity, integrity, and rights of all children. Children and young people, their well-being and welfare, is of paramount importance. We value and encourage the participation of children in all provincial, priory, and parish activities that promote their spiritual, physical and social development. We undertake to do all in our power to create a safe environment where children and young people are protected and cherished. We will endeavour to ensure that adults who work with children and young people follow the best practice guidelines

We invite those who may have been abused and who have never come forward to do so, so that they can be provided with help and support.



For the procedures to implement the child safeguarding policy, the Dominican Friars of the Province of Ireland, follows the guidance of the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland.
