Safeguarding Program Team
The Safeguarding Program has a team of volunteer safeguarding officers that are committed to supporting parishes and agencies throughout the Archdiocese in the implementation of Safeguarding.
These officers are a vital link between parishes, agencies and the Safeguarding Program office. They provide support and guidance and are a point of contact for any safeguarding concerns at the local level.
Barbara joined the Archdiocese of Perth as Acting Director in 2022. Barbara has worked with the Safeguarding Program previously and provides insight into overseeing the implementation of the National Safeguarding Standards through policies, procedures, and practices. With a background in governance and human services, it is Barbara’s mission to help create a safe, welcoming, and inclusive Archdiocese.
Thomas Law has joined us as our Coordinator for the Safeguarding component where he will engage and support Safeguarding Officers to build their capability and capacity to meet the requirements of the Safeguarding Handbook and National Catholic Safeguarding Standards.
