At the Catholic Parish of the Holy Family, we hold the care, safety and wellbeing of children and young people as a central and fundamental responsibility of our parish. We adhere to the Victorian Government's Child Safe Standards and follow the Archdiocesan Code of Conduct for Safeguarding for Children and Young People.

Reporting and Responding
We work to ensure all children, families and staff know what to do and who to tell if they observe abuse or a victim, or if they notice inappropriate behaviour.
Our parish records any child safety complaints, disclosures or breaches of the Archdiocesan Code of Conduct for Safeguarding for Children and Young People and stores the records in accordance with security and privacy requirements.
