The General Synod Standing Committee of the Anglican Church of Australia, meeting in Adelaide from 28-30 March 2003, has made three major recommendations to all Dioceses in regards to sexual abuse by church workers.

Draft legislation will be provided to each diocese to implement these initiatives.

Further work will be done to ensure consistency throughout the Church with protocols and codes of conduct for all working in the Church. Work is also proceeding on establishing screening processes, best practice training courses in child protection, and training in professional ethics in ministry
