Safeguarding in the Catholic Church

The Catholic Church in Scotland is committed to respecting, protecting and nurturing the dignity of all people.

All Components of the Catholic Church in Scotland, especially those in positions of leadership and responsibility, value the lives, wholeness, safety and well-being of each individual person within God’s purpose for everyone.  We seek to uphold the highest safeguarding standards in our relationships with people of all ages who are involved in whatever capacity with the Church and its organisations.  And therefore, as a Church community, we accept that it is the responsibility of all of us – ordained, professed, employed and voluntary – to work together to protect children and vulnerable adults from abuse or harm.
