New legislation in the form of the Sexual Offenders Amendment Act and the Sexual Offenders Registry, provides more proactive protection to children from any person who has been convicted of a sexual offences against a child. This legislation applies to any organisation or person who has access to children in the course of their employment and/or volunteer work.
To date we have assisted the following organisations to have these checks done, and the Child Protection Register Clearance completed:
- Ethelbert Childrens Home
- St Philomena’s Childrens Home
- Greyville Outreach
- Mother of Peace
