At the meeting of the Diocesan Synod on 02 November 2019 the appointment of
Mr Derek Scott to the position of Diocesan Safeguarding and Compliance Officer was announced.
A former senior PSNI officer, Derek has extensive experience in dealing with
safeguarding legislation in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Initially he will undertake a review of the implementation of Diocesan responsibilities under the Church of Ireland Safeguarding Trust policy following which it is intended to arrange Information Evenings for parishes early in 2020.
We warmly welcome Derek to the Diocese of Armagh and look forward to working with him.
