The Parish Child Protection Policy

Policy Statement
We in the Parish of Bodyke and Tuamgraney value and encourage the participation of children, young people and adults in all parish life and activities that encourage their spiritual, emotional, physical and social development.

While recognising the dignity and rights of all children, we will endeavour to do all in our power to create safe environments for children and young people in order to secure their protection and enable their full participation in the life of the Church.
