In 2003 the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in New South Wales agreed to establish a Child Protection Unit. The Unit was renamed the Conduct Protocol Unit [CPU] in 2011 as an indication of our commitment as a church to providing all congregations, presbyteries, organisations, and committees with the best possible support, advice and resources in relation to abuse matters.
The CPU serves the Presbyterian Church of Australia in New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory, South Australia, Tasmania, Western Australia, Mission Partners and Presbyterian Inland Mission.
The Director of the unit is Mr Jon Flood. Jon is responsible for working with churches and ministry organisations by supporting training, providing advice and managing auditing requirements.
The Administration Manager, responsible for all administrative matters including the Working with Children Check and SRE authorisation, is Miss Courtney Chan.
