Our Commitment to Safeguarding

"All components of the Catholic Church in Scotland, especially those in positions of leadership and responsibility, values the lives, wholeness, safety and well-being of each individual person within God's purpose for everyone. 

We seek to uphold the highest safeguarding standards in our relationships with people of all ages who are involved in whatever capacity with the Church and its organisations. 

And, therefore, as a Church community, we accept that it is the responsibility of all of us - ordained, professed, employed and voluntary members - to work together to protect children and vulnerable adults from abuse or harm." 

In God's Image, May 2018

Bishops’ Conference of Scotland commissioned an independent review into the suitability and robustness of the Safeguarding procedures and protocols of the Catholic Church in Scotland.  The Very Reverend Dr. Andrew McLellan, a former Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, was invited by the Bishops to lead the review. The commission released its report on Tuesday 18th August 2015.
