National Catholic Safeguarding Standards

OCM has recently contributed to the successful implementation of the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards, assisting the Director of Compliance for Catholic Professional Standards Ltd (CPSL) undertake reviews across the Archdioceses of Brisbane and Diocese of Rockhampton.

The reviews have assessed the maturity of implementation of the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards across Catholic parishes, services and agencies which provide education, youth ministries, childcare, disability services and more.  We have provided assurance over how well the Dioceses are implementing the Standards and input into the compliance auditing process for future reviews.

Ann-Marie Ingeri, who has experience in Qld Government child safety services, has been visiting parishes big and small across the Dioceses and spending time with a range of dedicated staff members and volunteers who are responsible for delivering services and implementing the Standards.
