Welcome to the website of the Child Safeguarding and Protection Service of the Archdiocese of Dublin.
The Child Safeguarding and Protection Service promotes the safe care of children involved in Church activities throughout the Archdiocese. It does this through:
- Providing training for priests and parish workers in safeguarding and child protection
- Dealing with complaints and concerns about child protection matters, reporting to the civil authorities and advising the Archbishop on any protective measures necessary to protect children from abuse
- Monitoring the activities of priests known to have abused children in the past in order to minimise the chance of them doing so again.
The service provides pastoral outreach and support for those who have experienced abuse by priests or parish workers.
