Safeguarding in Permanent Diaconate

Last Updated:

Safeguarding is of primary concern in the Permanent Diaconate, particularly in support of children and vulnerable adults.  In line with Diocesan policies and procedures, we:

  • Implement our diocesan-agreed Policy (available soon) which includes a Communication Plan.
  • Ensure deacons and men in formation are kept up to date with Safeguarding Information, through direct e-mail and our quarterly newsletter.
  • Review our communications plan regularly, and revise annually.
  • Maintain regular discussion on Safeguarding matters with key organisations, including the Southern Diaconate and National Diaconate.
  • Include a Safeguarding agenda item on all Directors' and Leadership Team meetings.
  • Use this website to inform those associated with the Permanent Diaconate to its commitment to Safeguarding.
