Safeguarding Children

Sacred Heart Parish, Upper Yarra Valley (Sacred Heart) holds the care, safety and wellbeing of children as a fundamental responsibility of the Parish. This commitment is drawn from, and inherent to, the teaching and mission of Jesus Christ, with love, justice and the dignity of each human person at the heart of the Gospel. A culture of safety within the Parish ensures that children can actively and fully participate in the life of the Parish and realise their potential in a faith community.  Below are the parish's Code of Conduct and Safeguarding Children Policy and a Reporting Form for reporting child safety misconduct or abuse.
