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
