Safeguarding

Craig Lodge Community is committed to creating a safe and nurturing environment for everyone who comes to visit or stay with us as part of our community or on retreat. We follow the Scottish Catholic Church’s Safeguarding Policy, ‘In God’s Image‘.

The Scottish Catholic Safeguarding Service

“The effective protection of minors and a commitment to ensure their human and spiritual development, in keeping with the dignity of the human person, are integral parts of the Gospel message that the Church and all members of the faithful are called to spread throughout the world. Many painful actions have caused a profound examination of conscience for the entire Church, leading us to request forgiveness from the victims and from our society for the harm that has been caused. This response to these actions is the firm beginning for initiatives of many different types, which are intended to repair the damage, to attain justice, and to prevent, by all means possible, the recurrence of similar incidents in the future.”
