The teaching of Christ establishes the special significance of every human being and especially the central place of children in the sight of God. Our parish is committed to fulfil His law of love and to provide for the safety, well-being and proper development of all children, young people and vulnerable adults in our care.
We will also properly equip and support those adults who work with and relate to them.

 In the Solway Plain Parish we work hard to maintain a safe environment for all.
