Child Protection Week 2018
Queensland Child Protection Week is held during the first full week of September each year. Schools, businesses, community groups and government organisations come together, to consider how best to promote the value of children and focus attention on issues of child abuse and neglect.
Children are a gift from God and must be protected from harm of every kind. Many Archdiocesan personnel through their ministries and services are in a unique position to identify child abuse and neglect and to do something about it.
The Archdiocese expects all personnel, including clergy, employees and volunteers to act upon concerns or complaints of abuse, and comply with reporting obligations.
Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.
