Description

Child Safe Standards and the Reportable Conduct Scheme: An Information session for religious and faith-based organisations

Date: Sunday 18 November 2018 Time: 2:30 - 3:50pm
Location: St Albans Community Centre - 309C Main Road East, Saint Albans, VIC 3021 (Meeting Room 2)
Cost: Free

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.

Facilitator: Emily Sanders, Director Regulation | Commission for Children and Young People
With an introduction by Reverend Ian Smith (Executive Officer of the Victorian Council of Churches) on the Reportable Conduct Scheme Faith Booklet

The Commission for Children and Young People is an independent statutory body that promotes improvement in policies and practices affecting the safety and wellbeing of Victorian children and young people. We have a particular focus on vulnerable children and young people. For more information see: www.ccyp.vic.gov.au
