WELCOME

TO THE NCCA SAFE CHURCH PROGRAM     

 

For over a decade, the NCCA Safe Church Program has led the ecumenical endeavour to make Australian Churches safe for children and vulnerable people. It has its own membership base that includes both NCCA member and non-member churches, and it works across all denominations to support churches in their safeguarding journey.

It is our core business to strengthen relationships across churches/ Christian faith communities, government agencies and other bodies to create safer organisations.

  A NOTE ABOUT COVID-19. 

Safe Church Workshops have been adapted for delivery via Zoom. The workshops are facilitated by two presenters and held over two sessions, each running 1.5 hours. This training is a hybrid of both the Safe Church Refresher Workshop and Safe Church Awareness Workshop. A certificate (valid for 12 months) is earned at completion which validates the training and also acknowledges the uniqueness of this time (COVID-19). 

Since the commencement of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and the release of the recommendations in December 2017, Australian churches and Christian ministries have embarked on historic changes.

Over the past two and a half years, the broader work of the NCCA secretariat and the work of NCCA Safe Church Program has been dedicated to consulting with member churches about the development of resources to assist with capacity-building to effectively meet the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations. 

This work has now come to fruition with the launch of the NCCA Child Safety Framework. With this launch has come a review of our core business and opportunities to evolve what we offer. This reflects not only the growth of the Safe Church Program but the growth of safeguarding expertise within our churches in Australia. 

We continue to passionately support awareness raising workshops and our pool of resources for churches continues to expand. For clarity on these changes, read our ‘Safe Church Program changes FAQ’
