CAM’s Professional Standards Unit (PSU) is structurally
situated within the Vicar General’s Office and was established on March 1,
2018. The Unit replaced the Office of Professional Conduct and Ethics which
operated from 2012 – 2017. The PSU and the former Office of Professional
Conduct and Ethics are differentiated largely by mandate, with the PSU having a
broader mandate than the former Office. The new Unit was established to further
enhance and strengthen CAM’s capacity to safeguard children and vulnerable
people in the wake of the findings of the Royal Commission into Institutional
Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, as well as the Victorian Betrayal of Trust
The PSU aims
to create and sustain a culture within CAM, which places the highest priority
on the safety, protection and wellbeing of children and vulnerable people. The
Unit provides advice and support across the Archdiocese to the leadership,
staff and volunteers to ensure that children, young people and adults are safe
from sexual, physical, spiritual and psychological abuse.
