LCA Child Safety Standards webinar recap
More than 370 people participated in the first LCA Child Safety Standards for Congregations webinar, held on Saturday 26 March.
Conducted jointly by the LCA Child Protection Project Officer Mary-Ann Carver and members of the Professional Standards Department, the webinar outlined the new child safety standards developed especially for LCA congregations.
The LCA Child Safety Standards for Congregations were approved for implementation by the General Church Board in October 2021. Every LCA congregation or parish is required to undertake a self-assessment of their child safety progress and prepare a child safety plan to guide their child safety activities. The self-assessment process is to be completed by the end of July and the plan by the end of September.
The webinar was recorded. It is strongly recommended that congregation and parish church council members watch it. It is available for viewing or download at www.lca.org.au/css Two more webinars will be presented – in June and September – to coincide with the completion dates for the Self-Assessment and Child Safety Plan tools.
