PARISH ACTIVITIES 


Parishes provide a wide range of activities to fulfil their mission.  
Parishes need to be aware of the risks involved with activities and how to minimise the risks to ensure safety for all involved: the parish, the workers and the participants.

CHILD PROTECTION POLICY

A child protection policy provides guidance for parishes and their people who work with children to create a safe environment for children.  It is a tool that protects children and staff by defining what action is required to keep children safe.

The Methodist Alliance has drafted a Child Protection Policy your parish can use to help build a strong culture of child protection.  It outlines the roles and responsibilities of people in your parish including the safe recruitment of staff and volunteers, and provides definitions of different types of abuse, indicators of abuse, confidentiality and information sharing, and how to report concerns.
