Policies and Procedures

CIDP has during the past number of years developed and agreed with staff and their representatives key policies and procedures namely:

These policies and procedures are available to all staff and are on this website. The policies and procedures have been discussed and agreed with the staff and their trade unions where relevant. In relation to the child protection policies of CIDP their introduction in 2007 was accompanied by a series of training workshops and the appointment of designated Liaison persons in each facility. The designated Liaison persons meet with the CEO facilitated by the Diocesan Child Protection Advisor and an outside consultant three times a year to review and coordinate activities in this key area. Individual CIDP operations have additional policies and procedures which can be found in their section of this website.
Between 2008 and 2013 CIDP conducted reviews of the standards of care at its three residences with particular emphasis on enabling the development of the people in its care and ensuring their protection. Following these reviews new policies and procedures regarding vulnerable adults and whistleblowing were put in place and all staff trained in their use. CIDP have recently completed the introduction of new care plans for all residents in its care and new supervision policies and standards are also now in place.
