St Vincent’s Parish Safeguarding Team

As directed by the Catholic Archdiocese of Perth Safeguarding Program, we endeavour to ensure that everyone engaged and working in the Parish, promote the inherent dignity of all persons including children and adults at risk and their fundamental right to be included, respected and nurtured in a safe environment. We seek to maintain high ethical standards in all decisions, actions and programs. We strive to be a safe place and put no barriers in place that will harm or hinder children and adults at risk.
