The Church of Ireland’s child protection policy, Safeguarding Trust, ‘the Code’, for short, has been in place since 1997 and was included in the Constitution of the Church of Ireland in 2006.

Church of Ireland child protection policy statement:

It is the policy of the Church of Ireland to set standards for the welfare of all children sharing in its ministry with a view to protecting them from physical, sexual and emotional harm.
Adherence to the Code by parishes means that children using Church of Ireland premises for worship and other activities such as Sunday schools, youth organisations and clubs have their general safety and welfare promoted while being protected from all kinds of abuse.
