Complaints and Whistle Blowing
The Defence Anglicans Community is committed to best ministry practice.
We have an independent and impartial process for dealing with complaints about ministry/chaplains misconduct, abuse and incidents.
We use Safe Ministry Resources as our professional standards unit.
If you have any concerns the abuse hotline is 1800 070 511.
Australian Defence Force Chaplains are also required to adhere to Defence Force regulations. Complaints relating to conduct within a service environment can be managed under Defence Instruction (General) Personal 35–3 Management and Reporting of Unacceptable Behaviour.
Complaints under this provision are made through your chain of command.
