Australian Catholic Safeguarding Limited

On 3 December 2020, the Catholic Church in Australia established a new company, Australian Catholic Safeguarding Limited, to oversee all safeguarding, child protection and professional standards in Australia, creating a more focused and streamlined model.  More information about this change is available at www.cpsltd.org.au/transition-to-acsl/.

National Response Protocol

The Catholic Church in Australia has also established a new, nationally consistent approach for handling concerns and allegations of abuse and other misconduct, creating the best outcomes for people bringing forward concerns, and those responsible for responding to them.  Adopted by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference (ACBC) in November 2020, the new National Response Protocol comes into effect for all dioceses and ACBC member entities from 1 February 2021.

TOWARDS HEALING PROTOCOL

The implementation of the National Response Protocol from 1 February 2021 means that the Towards Healing protocol will be phased out.   Church entities that have matters already being managed under the Towards Healing protocol can continue to use those processes until the matter is resolved.
