The Diocese of Sale is continuing to work towards creating Child Safe Parishes. Whilst we still deal with the horrors of the past and endeavour to bring healing to the hurts, we are trying to look forward, too, as we make a more conscious effort to create safe and supportive Parishes for everyone, but especially for children. To this end, we are continuing to implement our statutory obligations under recently passed Victorian government legislation.

The documents below are part of this continuing response and commitment to creating child safe Parishes.

Please Note: Parish volunteers who work with children and adults-at-risk are required to hold a valid Working with Children Check Card.
