Protect the trust vulnerable people place in your institution. Demonstrate your dutyof.care

Religious institutions in Australia play a key role in providing educational and social welfare services to many people. Priests, ministers, church elders, teachers, youth workers and others are trusted people who do amazing work in these settings.

Protecting that trust is more important than ever if faith-based organisations are going to continue their good work in Australia.

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse highlighted occasions where governance standards in religious institutions have been inadequate. A common trend was that organisations had unclear accountabilities, interrelationships, and reporting lines.

“at the highest level it was observed that people who played multiple roles had conflicting duties of responsibility. ”

The Royal Commission recommended that institutions ensure their leaders are accountable to an appropriate authority or body, such as a board of management or council, with respect to vulnerable people’s safety.

Where does the accountability sit?

It is no longer good enough to rely on spreadsheets and paper. It’s not even good enough to have a system which merely manages the expiry date of accreditations. It is not the responsibility of your administrative resource to simply “take care of it”.

You are battling too much administration, your staff do not understand the Working with Children Check requirements, and you don’t know where to get help.

At dutyof.care, we make the safety of vulnerable people our priority. Future proof your institution against the growing trend towards increased accountability and responsibility towards the most vulnerable members of the community.

Dutyof.care can provide proactive prevention and permanent proof that you are doing everything you can to manage the safety of those who need it most.

National Principles for Child Safe Organisations

Standard #5: “People working with children and young people are suitable and supported to reflect child safety and wellbeing values in practice.

The 10 Child Safe Standards are the foundation of the Royal Commission’s proposed nationally consistent approach to child safety in institutions.

Are you certain that right now, you could prove with absolute confidence that all your volunteers and club officials have current valid accreditations and have not had criminal charges in process that you have not been notified of?

The dutyof.care platform writes evidence of checking to a permanent, independent appropriately secured log that literally cannot be tampered with. Any future audit can therefore quickly and confidently demonstrate what checks were conducted. There are other software products currently available on the market that monitor accreditation expiry dates, but none provide continuous monitoring of accreditation validity, provide real-time notifications of changes in accreditation status and create a permanent auditable record of verifications.
