What We Do

Coimirce is a Company limited by Guarantee. The National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland (NBSCCCI) as a function of Coimirce is funded through three Sponsoring Bodies:


The functions of the NBSCCCI are set out in the Memorandum and Articles of Association, and apply to those who are constituent members. These functions can be broadly summarised into three categories:


  1. Advice and Support on all aspects of child safeguarding and case management within the Catholic Church in Ireland
  2. Development of policy, procedures and practice on all aspects of child safeguarding within the Catholic Church in Ireland
  3. Monitor child safeguarding practice of constituent members within the Catholic Church in Ireland

The NBSCCCI has invited constituent members to sign an MOU with the NBSCCCI committing them to following ‘Safeguarding Children Policy and Standards for the Catholic Church in Ireland, 2016’. A list of MOU holders can be accessed by following this link

We report on all of these functions through:

  1. Monthly Board Meetings
  2. Quarterly newlsetters
  3. Liaison Committee Meetings of Coimirce
  4. Annual meetings to Coimirce
  5. Bishop Conference Meetings upon request
  6. Meetings of the Executive of CORI and IMU upon request
  7. Annually through our annual report
