MacKillop Family Services involves a staff of some 1000 personnel and nearly 500 volunteers. Operating out of more than 30 sites our budget expenditure is $100 million.
MacKillop acknowledges the important work of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in promoting child safe policies and practices to better protect children. MacKillop is committed to promoting and protecting the best interests of children involved in its programs. MacKillop believes that all children have equal rights to protection from abuse and has a zero tolerance for child abuse, neglect and exploitation. The protection of children is a shared responsibility between MacKillop, all employees, workers, contractors, associates, and members of the MacKillop community.
MacKillop Family Services has embarked upon a journey of change through its adoption of the Sanctuary Model. The Sanctuary model is underpinned by the commitments of: Nonviolence, Emotional Intelligence, Social Learning, Open Communication, Social Responsibility, Democracy, Growth and Change.
The Sanctuary Model is a blueprint for clinical and organisational change which, at its core, promotes safety and recovery from adversity through the active creation of a trauma-informed community. A recognition that adversity is pervasive in the experience of human beings forms the basis for the Sanctuary Model’s focus not only on the people who seek services, but equally on the people and systems who provide those services.
MacKillop acknowledges the Traditional Custodians and their Elders in each of the communities where we work, affirms the significant place and identity Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders hold as First Australians, values and celebrates the strength of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Culture and actively commits itself to the truth telling, justice and healing that is required for reconciliation.
All children, young people and families are safe, thriving and connected to culture and community. MacKillop Family Services will care compassionately, respond large-heartedly and advocate courageously.
