TJHC addresses leading Catholic health provider

Catholic health and welfare organisations need to be increasingly aware and prepared for the fall-out from the child abuse Royal Commission.

Frankly speaking...

When the Royal Commission's work is done we should have a comprehensive snapshot of how institutions dealt with child abuse cases. So far the case studies have revealed short comings in many areas, including governance. With well less than a year of public hearings left, the Commission will intensify its scrutiny of organisational culture and practice. While some have in place good protocols and processes, we know that what works is a culture where everyone is respected.
