The purpose of the website is to give access to a range of information and tools which the Catholic Church is putting into place to safeguard our children and young people.
NBSCCC was established in 2006 and is sponsored by the Irish Bishops Conference, the Conference of Religious in Ireland and the Irish Missionary Union. Through the NBSCCC these three Sponsoring bodies are working towards a unified approach to child protection across Ireland.
The role of the NBSCCC is threefold:
- to advise the Irish Bishops Conference, the Conference of Religious in Ireland and the Irish Missionary Union on best practice relating to child protection policies and procedures,
- to develop policies and procedures, to guide all constituent members of the Church, in the direction of best practice in safeguarding children,
- to monitor practice in the various parts of the Church, through processes of audit and review.
