Child Safety

The Anglican Youth, Children and Families team is totally committed to a ‘child-safe’ culture in all that we do.  We screen and train our leaders thoroughly and employ extensive risk management strategies focused on preventing, identifying and mitigating risks to children.

The Anglican Church Southern Queensland takes all complaints of child sexual abuse and sexual misconduct regarding Church workers very seriously.

The Director of Professional Standards will respond to all complaints or information of misconduct in relation to child sexual abuse (including child exploitation material and grooming offences), sexually inappropriate behaviour, sexual assault or sexual harassment (including a failure in these processes) by clergy, Church workers, the Bishops and Archbishop.

The first step in making a complaint is to call Mr Greg Milles, the Director of Professional Standards on 1800 242 544 for support and assistance.

You can also write to the Director:

Mark your envelope “Confidential”.

Please be aware that the Director has an obligation to report to the Police all matters concerning child sexual abuse.
