Purpose of Document:-
The purpose of this document is to inform those working with children that some children do get abused, and to advise them of the procedure to be carried out if abuse is disclosed to them, or if they suspect abuse. This will assist us in providing a secure environment to children.
First and most important - whether it is your first contact with suspected child abuse or not:-
a. Ensure the welfare of the child.
b. Talk to someone.
Should you encounter any situation involving a child which gives you cause for concern; make a written note of the conversation, observation, dates, times, names, etc. Pass on this information immediately to your line manager/church leader, (i.e. named leaders). ........................................)
Do not be afraid to be wrong.
