Safe Ministry in the Diocese

Our Diocese is committed to holistic Safe Church Ministry. This means: we commit to our pastoral, duty of care, legal and insurance obligation; with its goal that all ministries are spiritually, emotionally and physically safe; based on the premise that Diocesan parishes and ministries should be person-valuing and respectful spaces free from abuse and harm, for ministry to God’s glory.

The Diocese has an ongoing commitment to safe ministry. We are committed to transparent and accountable policy and procedure in the areas of:

  • Prevention
  • Early intervention
  • Response
  • Recovery

In the Diocese of Canberra and Goulburn this is outworked though the Safe Communities Unit and the Office of Professional Standards.
