Complaints & Allegations & the Risk for Churches & Charities
September 8 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Background: Having worked in a local authority, managed and investigated allegations against staff in schools as well as volunteers and leaders in churches through his LADO role, Paul shares the learning on how church and charities should manage an allegation, how you manage risk and reputation through having robust systems and processes in place.
Rationale During 2020 we have seen a concerning increase in calls from churches to our advice line when an allegation of misconduct or bad practice or behaviour has been made against someone in a leadership or management position.
So, in response to this, we are offering the opportunity to attend a workshop/webinar to support churches in how to respond well to an allegation when its
A - below the statutory threshold for reporting,
B - when it meets statutory threshold for reporting.
Course Aim: Managing an allegation can be a really difficult and stressful situation for all concerned. This session is to help you to know how to respond by understanding the whole process from receiving the initial allegation, recording and reporting and right through to its conclusion.
Delivered within a biblical frame of reference as well as the legal framework
