"The Catholic Church in Scotland is concerned with the lives, safety, wholeness and well-being of each individual person within God's purpose everywhere.
It seeks to safeguard the welfare of people of all ages who are involved in whatever capacity with the Church and its organisations.
As a Church community, we accept that it is the responsibility of all of us, ordained, professed, paid and voluntary members, to work together to prevent physical, sexual, emotional abuse or neglect of children, young people and adults at risk."
