The Safeguarding Services (Training) Team is committed to working with all our entities, increasing the awareness of abuse and the need for every one of us to be vigilant in our responsibilities bestowed on us by Christ to protect His children and vulnerable people.
We have a collective responsibility as a faith based community to unite and create a safe abuse free environment where everyone can come and experience the love of God. This cannot be accomplished through wishful thinking or vague aspirations.
As part of this commitment, we are working with our Church entities to coordinate training, develop policies and screening procedures to mitigate against the risks of abuse. Through training, our leaders and those in child related positions will be better equipped to understand the impact of abuse and how we can further create a safe environment for everyone.
We encourage you to reach out to our Safeguarding Services Team who will be able to provide advice about compliance with legislation and regulations, which relate to the protection of children and other vulnerable persons.
