Victorian organisations that provide services to children are required under the Child Safety and Wellbeing Act to ensure that they implement compulsory child safe standards to protect children from harm. As category 2 organisations, churches are required to introduce standards in line with the Act.
This training session will include:
- An overview of the Victorian Child Safe Standards
- A Tool Kit for implementing the standards in your church
- Analysis of critical areas and obligations under the Act
This workshop will assist Church ministry staff and volunteers to understand the requirements of each of the Child Safe Standards, including examples of measures to be put into place.
This workshop is suitable for ministry staff and volunteers in the following ministries at your church: Volunteers in Kids ministries, Sunday school teachers, playgroup coordinators and helpers, Messy Church volunteers, Mainly Music volunteers, Kids Club volunteers, youth group volunteer leaders.
Both workshops will be presented by Amanda Lincke. Amanda worked in children’s ministry at Christ Church Hawthorn before becoming the children’s and families minister for the St Hilary’s Network.
