Safe Mnistry

Safe Ministry at St Matthew’s

St Matthew’s takes seriously the responsibility to create a safe ministry

At St Matt’s, the safety and well-being of everyone is one of our top priorities. That’s why we have comprehensive safe ministry policies and protocols in place to create a nurturing and secure environment for all.

Every volunteer at St Matthew’s undergoes a Safe Ministry Check with our Safe Ministry Team to ensure that our children and vulnerable people are safe, we follow the Policies and Protocols of the Anglican Diocese of Canberra and Goulburn and abide by the Diocesan Code of Good Practice.

This includes, for instance, police checks and training for all volunteers and staff who work with children and vulnerable adults. We also maintain a two-adult minimum policy in all children’s and youth programs, ensuring no one is ever alone with a minor. These practices are designed to foster trust and open communication, so everyone feels comfortable reporting any concerns they may have.

If you have any concerns regarding misconduct of abuse, please call the Safe Ministry Helpline on 1800 070 511
