Carmelites active in Child Safety

In the Annual Report by the Church to the National Office for Child Safety, the Carmelites of Australia and Timor-Leste drew particular attention to its work with 2 East Timorese child protection experts to review progress in implementing the Province's Safeguarding Policy. This also included a risk assessment of the ministries in Timor-Leste. The report of the 2 experts highlighted that Carmelites in Timor-Leste have a good understanding of the policy and positive attitudes towards implementing it. In addition to making helpful recommendations, the East Timorese experts produced a training manual and ran three training sessions with seminarians, staff, volunteers, teachers and key community leaders, specifically focusing on the code of conduct.
