Every human being has a value and dignity which we as Catholics acknowledge as coming directly from God's creation of female and male in his own image and likeness. This implies a duty to value all people and therefore to support them and protect them from harm.
In the Catholic Church this is demonstrated by the provision of carefully planned activities for children, young people and adults; supporting families under stress, care for those hurt by abuse in the past, ministering to and managing those who have caused harm.
It is because of these varied ministries that we need to provide a safe environment for all which promotes and supports their wellbeing. This will include carefully selecting and appointing those who work with children, young people and adults who may be at risk and responding robustly where concerns arise.
Everyone has a responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of the young and the vulnerable. In England and Wales overall responsibility sits with the Bishops Conference and Conference of Religious.
NEVER discuss this with the person who you think maybe a risk.
There are a wide range of volunteer roles within parishes including Altar Servers, Catechist, Youth Group Leaders, Eucharistic Ministers, Parish Safeguarding Representatives and many more. To get more information and start the safer recruitment process speak to your Parish Safeguarding Representative and Parish Priest.
You will have to complete a number of forms and discuss the reasons for wanting to become a volunteer. You will not commence voluntary work until you have completed the application process and your appointment has been confirmed.
