POLICY & PROCEDURES

Being a safe organisation includes ensuring that you have thorough policy and procedures in the areas of duty of care and people protection. 

The National Principles for Child Safe Organisations include two principles related to policy and procedures:   

Principle NINE: Implementation of the national child safe principles is regularly reviewed and improved.

Principle TEN: Policies and procedures document how the organisation is safe for children and young people.

Current and regularly reviewed policy and procedures, particularly in the area of child protection, are increasingly becoming a requirement for insurers and regulators.

Keeping up to date with changes in good practice and legislation is an ongoing task.  At SMR we regularly review our sample Safe Ministry Policy & Procedures to ensure our clients remain up to date and compliant.

Below are our General Sample Safe Ministry Policy & Procedures which are free to download.
SMR can also be contracted to assist in customising your current policy and procedures.
