    NEW NATIONAL CHURCH PROTOCOL FOR RESPONDING TO SEXUAL ABUSE

    Adopted by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference in November 2020, a new National Response Protocol for responding to contemporary and historical concerns and allegations of child sexual abuse will be implemented from Monday, February 1. The protocol is the results of two years of consultation within and beyond the Church, and draws on wisdom from the Royal Commission, governments, universities and the Catholic Church in other countries. 

     The National Response Protocol can be accessed via the Bishops Conference website at:
