Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy Framework - Information Sessions

The Professional Standards Unit is pleased to announce the launch of the updated Safeguarding Children and Young People Framework for the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne.

The revised framework replaces the CAM Child Safety Policy and the May Our Children Flourish – Code of Conduct for Caring for Children.

Why are these changes required?

The new policy reflects recent changes to legislation arising from:
  • Victorian Child Safe Standards (Commission for Children and Young People)
  • Reportable Conduct Scheme (Commission for Children and Young People)
  • National Catholic Safeguarding Standards (Catholic Professional Standards Limited)
  • National Principles for Child Safe Organisations (Australian Human Rights Commission).
Who should attend?

The information that will be presented is designed to introduce those who are involved in the implementation of child safety policies and procedures within a Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne parish, agency or entity to the updated framework.

The session will be most useful for:
  • Parish Priests
  • Agency or entity leaders
  • Child Safety Officers
  • Child Safety Committees
  • Pastoral Associates
Facilitators

The information sessions will be facilitated by staff of the Professional Standards Unit of the Archdiocese.
