This topic guide is to assist Parish Leaders to understand the minimum requirements for consideration of safety and care when establishing or reviewing children’s ministry. The guide will assist you to identify the key steps and documentation to complete and maintain. All Parish leaders are encouraged to consider their unique environment and program activities; undertake risk assessments and develop plans to minimise harm.
The Commission for Children and Young People can help organisations to meet the Child Safe Standards and create a culture of child safety. To help, they have produced a suite of resources, including a guide and tip sheets.
