Diocesan Screening Process - Serving the People of God
What is screening ?
Screening is an ongoing 10-step process designed to identify any person (volunteer or staff) who may harm children or vulnerable adults.
Volunteer screening serves two main purposes:
- to create and maintain a safe environment ;
- to ensure an appropriate match between volunteer and task.
Though a relatively new concept, volunteer screening is being adopted by a growing number of faith communities. The process includes assessing risk, writing position descriptions, discerning the suitability of an individual for a given task, providing training and, when necessary, modifying the setting and arrangement of the task.
