at Belmont Abbey
The protection and safety of
young people and vulnerable adults is of paramount importance to the monastic
community of Belmont Abbey. From the very beginning of the implementing of
safeguarding policies in the Catholic Church in England and Wales, Belmont has
taken this duty very seriously and, with the help of COPCA and CSAS and the
Archdiocese of Cardiff Safeguarding Commission, we have trained our monks to
put all the policies into effect as a matter of priority.
Recently the Conference of
Religious of England and Wales published a basic set of guidelines for
Religious called Integrity in Ministry. The Belmont Community has adopted the
contents of this important publication as its own Safeguarding policy and has
implemented them. Each member of the Community has his own copy of the book for
personal study and reference.
