“We are committed to the safety, well-being and dignity of all children, young people and vulnerable adults within our Diocese.”
Charles Gauci , Bishop of Darwin
Safeguarding is our joint responsibility.
In the Catholic Diocese of Darwin, we believe that all persons have the right to grow and develop to their full potential.
We are committed to the safety, well-being and dignity of all children, young people and vulnerable adults within our Diocese.
We have zero tolerance to abuse or exploitation of children, young people and vulnerable adults.
If you or a person close to you has been abused, or you are concerned about conduct that may result in a criminal offence, you should report this to the NT Police on 131 444.
Christine Smith is the Diocesan Safeguarding Officer. She is the first point of contact for anyone who wishes to make contact on any safeguarding matter.
