UPDATED EDITION Abuse Prevention Made Easy(er)
Physical and sexual abuse remains the #1 concern for organizations entrusted with the care and safety of children, youth and vulnerable adults.
But some think:
“Abuse Prevention is a lot of work!”
“We’re just a volunteer organization!”
“We trust our workers!”
“It’s too expensive!”
“Its unspiritual and legalistic!”
“We’ve never had an abuse claim!”
We know that abuse prevention measures including effective screening can be an ongoing challenge.
In a perfect world, we could trust everyone! But as we are all aware, it’s not a perfect, and a big part of the reason churches and Christian charities exist is to help make it better through ministry, compassion and faithful service to those most in need.
The safe care of vulnerable persons must remain a primary focus for organizations who serve them.
To help you, we’ve updated this newsletter to make Abuse Prevention policies, procedures and screening easier to understand, implement and maintain.
