The month of October has always been the safeguarding month in the Diocese but how it is marked this year has changed because of Covid19.
Issuing a newsletter to the people of the diocese the Safeguarding Office of the diocese acknowledges that every other October the office would be dealing with people face to face.
“Normally we would be holding a safeguarding conference, sending out the yearly safeguarding parish audits, visiting parishes, training etc.”
Ms Cleo Yates, Director of Safeguarding & Designated Liaison Person for the Diocese of Cork and Ross, says that “given these difficult times with Covid, things have changed and almost all our connection to the parishes is by way of online forms of communication, which brings its own challenges.”
The Newsletter is available for free download at this link.
