Annual report

As part of our commitment to safeguarding all of the children and vulnerable adults in our care, the Australian Province is publishing an annual report on its safeguarding activities.

The following report, for the 2016/17 year, includes updates on the Province’s safeguarding activities and engagement with the Royal Commission, as well as reports of abuse that have been received by the Province in the last year. This includes reports that relate to previous decades and to people who are now deceased.

‘The safeguarding of all people in our care, particularly children and vulnerable adults, is a fundamental concern for the Australian Province of the Society of Jesus. In fact, there is no greater responsibility for those that care for others than keeping them safe’, says Australian Provincial Fr Brian McCoy SJ.
