Safeguarding and Child Protection Policies

The Archdiocese of Sydney have introduced new policies concerning all volunteers who are 18 years or over. All these volunteers must now read and sign a Volunteer's Agreement, a Code of Conduct for working with children and young people and complete an Induction Training Course on safeguarding children. We as a Parish must ensure all the requirements are met and ask your co-operation in ensuring a safe environment for all.
