Pope Francis has made it clear he expects the Church, on every level, to implement whatever steps are necessary to ensure the protection of minors and vulnerable adults and to respond to their needs with fairness and mercy.
The aim of the New Zealand Diocese’s is to provide a consistent vision to create and foster a secure physical, emotional and spiritual culture in our faith communities, enabling everyone to enjoy the fullness of life in Jesus Christ.
Creating safe environments involves active participation and responsibility taken by all parishes. It requires collaboration, vigilance and a proactive approach through policies, procedures and practices.

In August 2019 the Catholic Diocese of Auckland appointed a Safeguarding Coordinator to support the Safeguarding program in the diocese.
Lisa-May Gray a Registered Nurse worked for the Royal New Zealand Plunket Trust for 38 years prior to joining the diocese. In the latter years of her work with Plunket Lisa-May became very familiar with the Child protection and Family violence environment, representing Plunket on many groups supporting tamariki and whanau. Lisa-May is now sharing her knowledge further through the implementation of the Safeguarding program in the diocese, and most importantly engaging with and building strong links with parish communities.
