Safeguarding

The Comboni Missionaries (or Verona Fathers as we were more commonly known before the Canonization of our Founder, Daniel Comboni, on October 5th 2005) regard the health, safety and well-being of every person as an absolute priority given that as Catholics we believe every human being has a value and dignity which comes directly from having been created in the image and likeness of God. In the area of Safeguarding, the Comboni Missionaries in England and Wales are aligned with the Safeguarding Commission of the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton, who provide advice and guidance on practical issues and on following the Policy and Procedures of the national Catholic Safeguarding Advisory Service (CSAS).

National Catholic Safeguarding Commission (NCSC): This Commission was formed in July 2008 following the acceptance, by the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales and the Conference of Religious of England and Wales, of the recommendations in the Cumberlege Commission Report “Safeguarding with Confidence” (2007). The NCSC has responsibility for setting the strategic direction of the Church’s safeguarding policy and monitoring compliance. Their seminal document “Towards a Culture of Safeguarding” (2012) forms the basis on which work is being taken forward in relation to raising standards of safeguarding throughout the Catholic Church in England and Wales.
