One of the greatest needs and focuses of any Kids Ministry should be that of safety and security. After all, we are entrusted with the most precious lives that mean the world to every parent who drops them off in our care. If we do not do our due diligence in providing a safe a secure environment for the children, then we are not demonstrating the value that we claim to place on them.
Many of you are aware of my friends at KidCheck. Well, they have developed a powerful child safety video and guide for organizations caring for children. These tools are designed to provide actionable, specific best practices and suggestions that can easily be put into practice to improve child safety and minimize any possible safety and security issues.
The video "Improving Child Safety in Your Organization" and companion "Child Safety and Security" guide discuss the leading concerns around child safety to help organizations create a safe environment for the children in their care.
