Safeguarding

Safeguarding and Ministerial Integrity Office

The focus of the Safeguarding Office is the prevention of abuse and harm to children, young people and the vulnerable within our Archdiocese. If you or a person close to you has been abused by someone working or ministering within the Archdiocese of Sydney, we invite you to contact us. We will listen to you respectfully, offer support and discuss the options you have available to you. Please contact the Safeguarding and Ministerial Integrity Office on (02) 9390 5810 or safeguardingenquiries@sydneycatholic.org

You may also want to speak to our Parish Priest who will be able to provide support and guidance. The Archdiocese has a legal obligation to report crimes to the  police.
