St George's Cathedral strives to promote a culture of safeguarding where all are safe from harm and abuse and where every person is encouraged and enabled to enjoy the fullness of life in Jesus Christ through the prayerful, caring, nurturing, supportive and protective endeavours of the Catholic community, both individually and collectively.

This is demonstrated by the provision of carefully planned activities for children, young people and adults.The Cathedral follows and conforms to the national standards for safeguarding in the Catholic Church which are set out by the Catholic Safeguarding Standards Agency (CSSA)
