We, the Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul serve, “without discrimination, men, women and children, and in general, every person who needs help”. (Constitution 10b)
We are thus committed to the protection and well-being of all people, especially children and vulnerable adults and to creating a safe and caring environment for all with whom we work.
In the event of an allegation of abuse being reported, clear procedures are followed and we are committed to listening to any victim / survivor who has suffered abuse.
We apologise unreservedly to anyone who has suffered abuse whilst in our care.
Together with our own Safeguarding Policy, we adhere to the Safeguarding Policies of the Catholic Church in Australia, England and Scotland.
We are aligned to the Australian Catholic Safeguarding Limited, the Archdiocese of Westminster Safeguarding Commission and the Safeguarding Services in the Scottish Dioceses.
