Circular – New Government Requirements for Ministers

Circular – New Government Requirements for Ministers

Plus: update to Safe Ministry Screening processes

This circular covers three important items for all ministry leaders to be aware of:

  1. Changes to the Definition of Mandatory Reporter
  2. NSW Reportable Conduct Scheme
  3. Deferral of the start to new Diocesan Safe Ministry Requirements.

The legislative changes in NSW have arisen from the recommendations made by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and impact all churches and religious organisations that engage in child related work.  

Please read the circular carefully and if you require any further information or if you have any questions you can reply to this email or contact Lachlan Bryant, Stephen Coleman or Stacie Pakula at the PSU on 9265 1604.
