Diocesan Child Safeguarding Survey
A strategic objective within the Diocesan Safeguarding Plan involves canvassing the views of a representative sample of children, young people and their parents on diocesan safeguarding activity in order to encourage their greater participation in such activity. The anticipated outcome would be to include their voices in developing the safeguarding service within the diocese.
To achieve this objective, we would ask that parents of children involved in the parish ministry (e.g. Family Mass, altar servers, Choirs, Liturgy Groups etc.) consider participating in the below survey:
The survey will be available until 14th November 2019 and we’d like to thank all who participate in advance.
