Safeguarding

We in the Parish of Our Lady of Mount Carmel value and encourage the participation of children and young people at an appropriate level in Parish activities that enhance their spiritual, physical, emotional and social development.  We also treasure the participation of vulnerable adults at an appropriate level in parish life. We recognise the dignity and rights of all children and vulnerable adults and are committed to ensuring their protection and support.

In keeping with this we will do all in our power to create a safe environment for children and young people and for vulnerable adults in order to secure their protection and enable their fullest possible participation in the life of our parish.
