Release of Information Policy

The files kept in safe-keeping by the Professional Standards Office contain information that may be classified as private, confidential, sensitive or privileged to a range of people involved in the matter.

The Professional Standards Office understands the legal requirement to protect the privacy of others (see the National Privacy Principles).

The Professional Standards Office is also mindful of the need to act with transparency in matters relating to abuse complaints and the Church’s commitment to the continued support of those effected by abuse and misconduct.

The Professional Standards Office also assumes that Church Authorities involved in abuse complaints will have a considerable interest in requests to obtain information/documentation contained in complaint files.

The Professional Standards Office understands that that information and documents relating to Towards Healing abuse complaints are discoverable in litigation.

Therefore, when a request for the release of information/documentation is received by this office staff will make all reasonable efforts to satisfy the request in a manner that protects private, confidential, sensitive or privileged information.

As a general rule, only the below documents will be released if contained in the file held by the Professional Standards Office:

  • The written disclosure submitted by the person who has been abused
  • Disclosure Report
  • Findings of the Assessment Report
  • Facilitation Report
  • Deed of Release
