A joint statement by the Australian Catholic Bishops’ Conference and Catholic Religious Australia - a body of religious in Australia, comprising more than 150 member congregations - falls on the second anniversary of the final report of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
Significant progress – the signatories of the statement say - has been made in child protection, but keeping kids safe remains a top priority, and any institution that engages with young people must continue to be vigilant.
