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 and vulnerable adults involved in Church activities throughout the Archdiocese. It does this through:

– Providing training for priests and parish workers in safeguarding and child and vulnerable adult protection
– Dealing with complaints and concerns about child and vulnerable adult protection matters, reporting to the civil authorities and advising the Archbishop on any protective measures necessary to protect children and vulnerable adults from abuse
– Monitoring the activities of priests known to have abused children and vulnerable adults 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.
