In December 2015, the Victorian government introduced minimum Child Safe Standards into law to ensure that organizations providing services to children and young people create child safe environments. Ministerial Order 870 is a key part of the Government’s response to the recommendations of the Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry into the Handling of Child Abuse by Religious and other Non-Government Organisations.

Marcellin College supports the Ministerial Order and Child Safe Standards to ensure protection of all children, believing all young people have the right to be protected from all forms of abuse and neglect.
