TRIBUNAL SAFEGUARDING POLICY
All information shared during the Tribunal process will be treated with respect and confidentiality. However, there are limits to the confidentiality in that if information is brought to the attention of the Tribunal concerning child sexual abuse, where an indentified individual may pose a threat to children, the statutory authorities will be given the identified name/relationship or status and/or alleged victim’s name with the contact details of the person who is giving the information. This is in keeping with Tribunal Policy and the Catholic Church’s Policy – Safeguarding Children: Standards and Guidance Document for the Catholic Church in Ireland. The Designated Tribunal Safeguarding Officer is Mr. Kevin Duffy, Diocesan Pastoral Centre, Áras de Brún, Newtownsmith, Galway, phone number +353-87-6141736.
