Our community is committed to the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults.
Within the Archdiocese, safeguarding includes the actions undertaken to promote the protection and well-being of those who engage with the Archdiocese and to prevent abuse.
The Archdiocese holds that children and vulnerable adults are a gift from God with an intrinsic right to dignity of life, respect and protection from harm.
The Archdiocese does not tolerate abuse by Church personnel or others involved in its ministries and services.
As an outcome of the Royal Commission the Truth Justice and Healing Council has developed a Towards Healing Policy.
