CHILD PROTECTION

Child Protection Statement

 

The Parish of St. Augustine's Church, Coffs Harbour is wholly committed to ensuring the safety, well-being and dignity of all children, and acknowledges its important legal, moral and spiritual responsibility to create a safe and nurturing environment for those children.

The community has very clear expectations in matters relating to child protection and expects children will be protected from all forms of harm including sexual, physical and psychological harm, ill treatment and neglect.

St. Augustine's Parish supports these expectations and strives to promote the safety and protection of children and other vulnerable persons in its care.
