About the National Board for Safeguarding Children

in the Catholic Church in Ireland

The National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland was established in 2006 in order to provide best practice advice and to monitor the safeguarding of children in the Catholic Church.

Over recent years there has been an increasing recognition of the existence of child abuse and growing acceptance of the potential risks to children from others working in positions of trust. Greater attention, therefore, has been paid to how church organisations ensure that the children with whom they are in contact are kept safe from harm.

Members

The National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church is a fully independent body comprising of twelve Board Members under the chairmanship of Mr John Morgan.

In 2007 the Board appointed Mr Ian Elliott as Chief Executive Officer; he retired in 2013. In 2008 Ms Teresa Devlin was appointed as Director of Safeguarding and she took up the position as CEO in February 2014.
