In May 2019 Catholic Professional Standards Ltd (CPSL) published the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards, focusing on the protection of children engaged in all aspects of Church ministry across Australia. More than 20 entities have been audited to date to assess the extent to which they are implementing necessary safeguards for children, with audits revealing a strong commitment and dedicated action to create child safe environments. Since late 2019, CPSL has been working to expand the Standards to include protections for adults engaging with Church ministry. This lecture will explore some of the trends and findings emerging from CPSL’s audit work, as well as the directions of the groundbreaking framework for the safeguarding of adults.
