Lutheran Aged-Care & Community Services Governance Dialogue
This dialogue was a 2017 national project of the Lutheran Church of Australia (LCA). It discussed governance arrangements in Lutheran aged-care and community services.
The various phases of the project are summarised in the table below.
The intent of the dialogue was to strengthen and build on the rich history of service provided by Lutheran aged-care and community services across Australia.
The General Church Council has approved a Governance Enhancement Implementation Plan to implement the recommendations of the final ‘Way Forward’ report and the agreements reached during the dialogue process.
This website will be redeveloped to reflect the transition into the implementation phase, which will continue to be underpinned by ongoing dialogue and cooperation.
