Safeguarding | Diocese of Lismore

The Diocese of Lismore’s Safeguarding Team works to ensure that we all stay connected in our efforts to promote a safer Diocese and to keep us all up to date with relevant information and important updates.  The Diocese has a handbook that details all policies and procedures in relation to Safeguarding Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults.  A copy of this handbook is available from the Parish Office.
