Good Shepherd Sisters perform well in audit

The audit of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd was ACSL’s final audit for 2021

The Sisters of the Good Shepherd have fully implemented or are substantially progressed in the implementation of all 63 indicators of the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards, an Australian Catholic Safeguarding Ltd audit shows.

ACSL published the safeguarding audit report of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd (Australia and New Zealand) on Friday. The audit reports Church entities’ progress in implementing the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards, a national framework for the protection and safety of children in Catholic organisations.

ACSL’s Manager of Audit and Review, David Treanor, said that safeguarding audits conducted by ACSL form part of the Catholic Church’s ongoing response to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

“Through our audit program we help Church entities identify any risks in their safeguarding practices and then provide practical recommendations to improve child safety within the organisation,” Dr Treanor said.

“We undertake a detailed review of the policies and documentation and combine this with interviews with key personnel about safeguarding practices within the organisation.”

“We congratulate the Sisters for their work in committing to the standards. They have demonstrated the cultural change that helps to create child safe organisations and are committed to continuous improvements in their safeguarding practices.”
