All of our kids and youth programs are run by a combination of employed and volunteer Leaders from our church. All of our Leaders are required to have current working with children checks and undergo Child Safe Training. This is to ensure we provide a safe environment to all.
What is Childsafe?
Researched and proven standards and training resources to help keep children and vulnerable people safe.
ChildSafe is a not-for-profit harm prevention charity. The genesis of the ChildSafe Safety System was developed under Scripture Union (SU) Australia reflecting over 100 years of camping and outdoor activity with children and young people.
It is used widely across Australia and New Zealand by community organisations and schools, but particularly in the church sector.
Tackling systematic safety shortcomings that allow harm to children and vulnerable people, is a defining issue common to community and volunteer organisations.
“...few organisations that submitted to the Inquiry put a strong emphasis on assessing and mitigating risks within their organisation.”
