The Royal Commission is investigating its 21st public hearing this week, the last for 2014. The Catholic Church has been the focus of just over a third of the case load since the Royal Commission commenced public hearings in September last year.

We anticipate from mid-2015 further Church institutions will come under scrutiny. We can expect Catholic Church institutions will then remain under the spot light throughout the course of Royal Commission.

The Church has listened and is now putting in place reform policies that will strengthen the Church’s approach to the safety of children and vulnerable people. The first step is managing a broad consultation process to establish an independent accreditation and auditing body.
