St John’s Self-Assessment of our Child Safety Process
From the recent Royal Commission into child safety, the Lutheran Church of Australia (LCA) has developed 10 standards that are being rolled out to all congregations.
There are 3 stages of the LCA roll out:
1. Self-assessment of how well St John’s meets these standards
2. Plan for improvement
Our self-assessment is underway with Church Council’s appointed assessor Nerida O’Shea having met with the Boy’s Brigade last Monday night.
Nerida is at the information gathering stage of the process in this self-assessment, which needs to be completed by the end of July 2022.
Set questions are asked and once the information is gathered, a rating is chosen for each of the 10 standards and these findings are presented to Church Council.
The subsequent preparation of a Plan (step 2) and its Implementation (step 3) is the job of Church Council.
To gather enough information, Nerida needs to speak with a range of St John’s people from Children’s Coordinators to Church Leaders to young people and families.
Nerida is keen to ask people how they think our congregation is going with specific elements of child safety and ideas for doing things better.
Please help our congregation to improve by speaking with Nerida if asked to answer some questions on child safety.
Speak with Nerida O’Shea or Vicki Francis (Safe Church Coordinator) for more information – contact via email@example.com
