From 1 January 2017, religious and faith-based organisations that provide services for children are required to comply with Child Safe Standards. These standards aim to drive cultural change in organisations so that protecting children from abuse is embedded in everyday thinking and practice. The standards are compulsory but not prescriptive. This allows religious organisations flexibility in how they implement the standards to meet the requirements.

From 1 January 2018, religious and faith-based organisations are required to comply with the Reportable Conduct Scheme and respond to allegations of reportable conduct, and misconduct that may include reportable conduct, made against their workers and volunteers, by investigating those allegations and reporting to the Commission for Children and Young People.

If you are part of a religious and faith-based organisation that is required by law to be compliant with Child Safe Standards and the Reportable Conduct Scheme, this is an information session to support your knowledge and implementation. We all have an obligation to do the best we can to keep children safe from harm and abuse.

The workshop will include an interactive style discussion on practical case studies to illustrate the application of the Scheme.

Facilitator: Emily Sanders, Director Regulation | Commission for Children and Young People
