Child Safeguarding Ireland
Notification was received from the Dublin Diocese that the fee per form is to be increased from €10 to €15.
This will come into effect for the Legion from the 1st January 2020.
A revision of the Legion of Mary Child Safeguarding Policy will commence shortly. A recommendation will be made whether to include Vulnerable Adults in the Policy or to have a separate one - as is the case for the Dublin Archdiocese and which is available on the website of the Archdiocese.
A change has taken place over the summer period in how Garda Vetting forms are transferred to the Archdiocese for processing. However, this has been implemented just this month by the Legion. So far it shows that forms are being processed more quickly.
For those who are waiting for word back in order to fill in their on-line forms please ensure that you check not only the email address provided but also Junk Mail as it seems a number of forms are finding their way into it.
Thank you to all for your co-operation.
