The Resource Team – David Gavin, Antoinette Shaw and Joan Walshe – assists the Diocese of Meath with the implementation of policy and the provision of training.

The safeguarding trainers, David and Antoinette, conduct the field work in all parishes, supporting the clergy and PSRs (parish safeguarding representatives) at local level to maintain best practice on the ground.

They promote child safeguarding by:

• Working with the safeguarding committee to identify training needs;

• Delivering full-day and information-session safeguarding training to those identified by the safeguarding committee in the Diocese;

• Keeping records of all of those who have been trained;

• Contributing to upholding the seven standards in practice and behaviour.
