We Take Professional Standards Seriously

Episcopal Standards

Episcopal Standards complaints may be made against the Bishop of a Diocese. This is different to a Professional Standards complaint, which deals with complaints of misconduct against Church workers.

The Director of Episcopal Standards responds to all complaints of misconduct including, but not limited to, sexual, physical, spiritual or emotional abuse by a Bishop.

The Director is as independent as possible from the Diocese but is paid by the Diocese via a levy charged annually to each Diocese.

Making a Complaint

A complaint can be made by calling: (02) 8267 2700

and leaving a message for the Director of Episcopal Standards, or writing to:
