Provincial's Foreword

I am very pleased to introduce our Safeguarding Website. It has been developed to assist and facilitate the implementation of best practice in safeguarding in all our ministry with children and young people in the Irish Dominican Province.

The Dominican Province of Ireland signed up to Safeguarding Children: Policy and Standards for the Catholic Church in Ireland 2016, produced by the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland (NBSCCCI) in 2016.

Each of us has an important role to play in creating and maintaining an environment in which children and young people can grow and flourish, safely, whilst helped to achieve their potential.

Fr. Gregory Carroll, O.P.

Prior Provincial,
