Creating Safe Environments
STRENGTHENING OUR PARISH COMMUNITIES is a core standard of care embraced by all clergy, religious orders of clerics, sisters and brothers, employees and volunteers working in parishes and ministries of the Archdiocese of Winnipeg. The core standard of care involves policies and procedures designed to create and maintain a safe environment in our parishes and programs.
This standard of care includes assessing all activities in parishes and ministries of the Diocese to identify all positions especially those which could put children, youth or other vulnerable persons at risk of being harmed. The goal at all times is the protection and safety of our children, vulnerable people, volunteers, clergy, religious, employees, volunteers and our Church.
In order to ensure the greatest care it is essential that all positions are assessed, assigned appropriate risk levels and that appropriate screening, management practices and follow up are maintained consistently throughout the Diocese.
The policies that are part of the Safe Environment Program for the Archdiocese of Winnipeg are:
- The Archdiocese of Winnipeg Policy for Protection of Children, Youth, and Vulnerable Adults
- Archdiocese of Winnipeg Protocol – Protecting Minors from Sexual Abuse & The Pastoral Response to Abuse Complaints
The purpose of the Safe Environment Handbook is to assist parishes in making their own successful programs by incorporating best practices in the areas of child, youth and vulnerable person safety, policies of the Archdiocese of Winnipeg and Ecclesiastical Insurance standards.
