Valuing Our Children

At the Parish of the Assumption, Dalkey, the participation of children in all Parish related activities is welcomed and encouraged. So, in accordance with the duty of care, the Parish undertakes to ensure a safe environment for children in keeping with the guidelines of the Irish Bishops’ Conference.

If you are concerned for the well being of any child, it is a duty to convey this concern to the designated person / Child Protection Officer, who in turn will report the information to the Health Service Executive. The HSE will inform An Gárda Síochána.

In an emergency, a report should be made directly to An Gárda Síochána.
