We strive to protect all people from any kind of abuse. Children and vulnerable adults are the most in need of protection and so it is our priority to keep them safe. For Jesus said, after welcoming a child, “whatever you do to the least of these, you do to me”.

We rely on the Safeguarding Principles and Practices of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, which are being overseen by the CSAS (Catholic Safeguarding Advisory Service). Please see the CSAS website for more information.

We are also guided by the Integrity in Ministry, guidelines recently published by the Conference of Religious of England and Wales (COREW).

We also adhere to the policies and practices of the Congregation here.

We are aligned to the Catholic Diocese of Leeds Safeguarding Commission.
