5. What information will be released to the Catholic Archdiocese of Adelaide?

The DHS will not release any information relative to any specific recorded criminal history, child protection issues or concerns. An assessment of risk will take place and a final outcome will be issued based on all of the information presented to the Department. 

The Department of Human Services (DHS) Screening Unit will however, provide the necessary information relative to the outcome to the Archdiocese in instances where applicants are assessed as posing a risk to the safety of children.

The Archdiocese will receive the finalised outcome notification as a result of that assessment.
