The Child Safeguarding Policy Guide is a comprehensive resource that will aid churches in keeping children safe, holding offenders accountable, and witnessing their commitment to care for the least of these. Many leaders are tempted to ask for a policy template that can be adopted without discussion or learning about the issues and dangers. Unless leaders talk through the topic and consider the problem as it applies to them, a hastily adopted policy will ultimately fail. This practical guide, developed by experts, will help your church or ministry incorporate best-practice child protection policies and procedures. Studying the resources in this guide, leaders and members will learn to recognize, prevent and respond to child abuse.
