Here you will find sample Safe Ministry policy, procedures, codes of conduct and implementation resources along with some helpful weblinks to government and other companies.

The Resources on our website combine to build what we call a Safe Ministry Framework which is designed to ensure that all persons associated with your organisation fulfil their:
a. pastoral
b. legal and 
c. organisational responsibilities, with the aim of providing God-honouring, life-giving, harm-free ministry.

The combined resources ‘Framework’

a. includes policy, procedures, codes of conduct and implementation resources,
b. takes into account the 10 National Principles for Child Safe Organisations 2018 and other relevant legislation (see appendix),
c. forms part of organisational operational documentation, and
d. is to be implemented by all workers (paid and volunteer) of the organisation, acknowledging that safety is a shared responsibility.

SMR also partners with Child Safe in projects for the prevention of harm to children and vulnerable people, including the Anglican Safe Ministry Edition of Safety Management Online (SMO).
