This week, 3 to 9 September, is National Child Protection Week – designed to highlight how protecting children is everyone’s business. The overarching message is ‘Every child in every community needs a fair go’. In 2023, the theme for the week is ‘Where we start matters’.
The LCANZ’s Child Protection Project Team this month has released two new congregational resources supporting the church’s Child Safety Standards (CSS). The new resources back up Child Safety Standard 2 – ‘We value, respect and listen to children’.
The LCA’s new Child Safety Standards for Congregations have been approved by the General Church Board (GCB). These standards were developed to implement the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations across all LCA congregations in Australia.
