Safeguarding News and updates will be regularly posted here.

In December 2023, the safeguarding team were honoured to have a meeting with Rev Andrew Small, from the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors. Archbishop John was also in attendance. We were able to learn about the work of the Commission, its collaboration with Survivors and the aims for organisational change to ensure the ongoing safeguarding of our Church. Rev Small was also keen to hear about the safeguarding work of the Archdiocese. This included the safeguarding teams improvement journey, the audit and the work of our volunteers-particularly our PSR’s and the diverse and complex work of the safeguarding team.
