Safe Church

The Anglican Diocese of Gippsland is committed to providing a safe place for worship and fellowship. We all have a duty to protect all who participate in the life of the church from abuse, especially children, young people and vulnerable adults.

Abuse can be defined as any behaviour which causes harm and violates the rights of others. It can be:

  • Emotional, physical, sexual or spiritual abuse;
  • Bullying; and / or
  • Harassment.

Please tell someone if you feel uneasy or have the slightest concern:

  • about the behaviour of an adult towards a child or vulnerable person;
  • that someone may have been abused;
  • or the welfare of a child.
