The Child Protection Solutions story

Whilst the protection of children is no doubt a community responsibility, anyone who works in any capacity with children/young people either as professionals or volunteers have not only a moral but in many cases a legal responsibility to ensure their safety.

It is imperative that these people undergo the highest quality level of training in order to first and foremost protect children, as well as themselves and the church/organisation.

Child Protection Solutions offer a range of specialised child protection and awareness seminars designed to equip people who work with children to manage and appropriately respond to suspicions of, or disclosures of all forms of child maltreatment, as well as seminars that focus on equipping people to keep young people, as well as the church/organisation safe from child sex offenders.
