Protecting children and vulnerable adults

Australian Catholics is a ministry of the Australian Jesuit Province. The Province has policies in place regarding how both religious and lay people engage in their ministry. The principles, protocols and standards of practice governing the work of Jesuits and lay partners are outlined in the Province's Policy for Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults

Principles and procedures relating to how Australian Church ministries engage in ministry are also outlined in the Towards Healing document, as well as the documents Integrity in Service of the Church and Integrity in Ministry. Issues involving Church-related abuse are dealt with via the National Committee for Professional Standards.

The Truth, Justice and Healing Council is coordinating the Catholic Church’s response to the Royal Commission with a commitment to cooperation, openness, full disclosure and justice for victims and survivors.

Reporting, remedy and redress

If anyone wishes to bring a complaint of abuse against any member of staff, present or past, of a Jesuit school or other ministry, please refer to the options on our Province website.
