SafeGuarding

Catholic Safeguarding Project

Dear Parish Volunteer Parishes are central to the mission and life of the church. This is lived out in practice by the many ministries and activities which take place in parishes e.g., sacramental programmes, children’s liturgy, youth work, public worship, outreach to the sick and housebound, pastoral care of many vulnerable people and social events – to name but a few. Most of these activities, supported by parish clergy, are led and run by amazing volunteers who generously and freely give their time and skills. Clergy, volunteers and paid staff share a trust and responsibility to safeguard others and themselves and should be supported to do this. As you may know there has been an independent review of safeguarding arrangements in the Catholic Church in England and Wales. You can learn more about the review by visiting www.catholicsafeguardingproject.org The review established 8 national safeguarding standards which explain what the Church must do in order to safeguard members of the Catholic church, those we minister to and those we come into contact with. One of the standards relates to embedding safeguarding into Church Governance, Ministry, and Culture. Amongst other things, this will require Church Leaders to provide the right resources to support parishes in their safeguarding responsibilities. In order to inform the Church’s leadership on what is in place already and how best to support volunteers in parishes, the Catholic Safeguarding Project, which is implementing the Independent Review recommendations, is gathering information on: 1. What support, training and information is currently available to parish volunteers; 2. How best parish volunteers might be supported in the future. We are sending out 2 survey forms, 1 for the Parish Priest and/or PSR to complete which is about parish resources, and this one which is about you as a volunteer. The survey can be completed online by following this link : https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/wrexham-parish-resource-audit-vol Your responses will be collated and analysed by the Catholic Safeguarding Standards Agency (CSSA) (privacy notice can be found here Procedures Manual – CSAS) who will ensure that information about how best to support parishes is fed back to Church leaders via an overarching thematic report. Additionally, responses will be provided back to each diocese to inform them about local needs. As a valued volunteer within your parish, thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. We hope your contribution to this survey will in the long run benefit your parish. If you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact Mary Rowlands, Safeguarding Coordinator 01978 262726 or safeguarding@rcdwxm.org.uk June 2021
