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.
