The Focolare, together with the Catholic Church in Scotland, England and Wales and other Christian Churches is striving towards a culture of safeguarding where all are safe from harm and abuse and where every person is encouraged and enabled to enjoy the fullness of life in Jesus Christ through the prayerful, caring, nurturing, supportive and protective endeavours of the Christian community, both individually and collectively.

This policy and the related procedures underpin and are embedded in our mission to share God’s love with all.
The Focolare Movement is an international movement which takes as its inspiration Jesus’ prayer to the Father “May they all be one” (Jn 17:21). For over seventy years it has drawn together people of all Christian traditions and from many of the world’s religions, alongside people with no formal faith, who share the aim of building a united world.
