Safeguarding Statement

At the invitation of the Provincial, Br Donatus Forkan OH, the NSBCCCI are undertaking a review of the Hospitaller Order of Saint John Of God’s safeguarding practice, past and present as part of this process. We invite anyone who has experienced abuse or has any concerns about safeguarding in Hospitaller Order of Saint John of God and has not yet come forward to do so either to the Designated Liaison Person, the Gardaí, or TUSLA, Child & Family Agency (formerly the HSE)


We, Brothers of Saint John of God, believe that each person is the creation of God with intrinsic value and that our life’s mission is to fulfil our role in achieving God’s mission for all of creation.

The values and fundamental principles that guide our life in Community are found in the Gospels, the teachings of the Church and the example of our Founder.

Hospitality is the original and core value of the Order. In upholding this, we practice our espoused values of Care, Compassion, Respect, Dignity, Trust, Excellence and Justice.

As a consequence, we uphold the sacredness of each person and are committed to ensuring that each person that we serve is safe and free from harm or abuse of any kind.

We uphold and practice our Safeguarding Vulnerable People Policy & Procedures which have been developed in accordance with National Legislation, National Policy and the Catholic Church policy and procedures Safeguarding Children: Standards and Guidance (2009).

We would urge anyone who has a safeguarding concern to come forward and contact the authorities, ourselves or the NBSCCCI – details below.
