 Our outreach services target areas of unmet need. They are available to all members of the community free of charge or at minimal cost.

Our Service Statement of Commitment to Child Safety

St John of God Social Outreach is committed to providing a safe environment for all children/young people in its care and proactively takes measures to protect children/young people from abuse. We actively implement strategies to ensure that our services are physically, spiritually, socially, and emotionally safe.  The welfare of the children/young people in our care is our first priority and we have zero tolerance towards child abuse, which is any act committed against a child/young person involving physical violence, sexual offences, emotional and/or psychological abuse or neglect.
