Safe Church Training20th Mar | 7:00 pm
The Safe Church Initiative training empowers you and each church to recognise and respond to Domestic Violence and Abuse both within the church and wider community context.
Safe Church offers churches a best practice, tested methodology for helping people in their community. Churches are seen as safe places to ask for help and this training gives us tools to respond sooner and better. Safe Church Training helps us as a church effectively respond to disclosures of abuse and support anyone affected to access support.
As a Safe Church we commit to:
- 1. Support the Safe Place Campaign Pledge: never to commit, condone or stay silent about domestic violence or abuse.
- 2. Acknowledge that domestic violence or abuse are problems that impact on all of us as a society, and will be prepared to play our part in supporting anyone affected.
- 3. We will provide a Safe Place for anyone affected by domestic violence or abuse to confidentially access information.
This training is delivered and funded by ONUS for local churches and will be carried out as a set of two training nights on Wednesday 20th March and 3rd April at 7:30pm-9:30pm. Our dream is that every local church is trained and identified as a Safe Church working together to see an end to Domestic Abuse.
