SMR has over 15 years of experience in implementation of face to face Safe Ministry prevention education

Safe Ministry training aims to assist church workers in understanding their pastoral, organisational, legal and risk management responsibilities towards reducing the instances of ministry misconduct, abuse, and duty of care and/or safety failures, and to provide churches with general good practice advice for Safe Ministry. 
SMR recognises that training does not ensure Safe Ministry, but that this will be achieved through the implementation of robust policy, procedures and  through safe ministry interactions.
