Our Commitment to Safeguarding

Safeguarding involves putting processes in place to ensure that vulnerable people are not harmed in any way.

CatholicCare continues to build a culture and practice of safeguarding to protect the people we serve. The welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults is at the heart of what we do. We empower staff and those in our care to speak up, share positive feedback, make a complaint or report abuse and neglect. We take what they say seriously. We respond to concerns. We listen and value the insights from children, young people and adults we support. We step up and speak out.

CatholicCare welcomes the release of the ten National Catholic Safeguarding Standards, which are in line with the Child Safe Standards identified by the Royal Commission, and the National Principles of a Child Safe Organisation. CatholicCare embeds safeguarding at the core of all our services, and will use the standards to support our ongoing commitment to the safety and wellbeing of children and vulnerable adults.

If you require assistance, support or have a safeguarding concern please contact Angela Thomas, Manager for Safeguarding on (02) 9481 2683 or via email angela.thomas@catholiccaredbb.org.au.

We are dedicated to protecting children, young people and vulnerable adults.
