The Kingscourt Parish Safeguarding Awareness team consists of Aine Gogarty, Barbara Gaynor, Catherine Byrne and Dara Murtagh who work very hard to ensure a positive experience for children and young people taking part in any parish activity. Our safeguarding policy contains codes of behaviour for the children and the adults involved in parish activities, consent forms which parents sign before young people participate in activities, adequate supervision and goof recruitment practices. The team together with Fr. Gerry continue to receive on-going support and training in this work.
Last year the team distributed a leaflet prepared in a child friendly way for altar servers and later this month we will have a similar leaflet for young people in our choirs (Leaflet available at bottom of this page to download). We acknowledge the children and young people who take part in parish activities and hope they will continue to be part of parish life. Thanks to all our parents and volunteers. Your enthusiasm, care and welcoming manner play a huge part in ensuring that children have a positive experience in our parish of Kingscourt.
