Safeguarding of Children

Safeguarding of Children

Children Protection ChildSafeguarding of children is an overriding priority for the Sword of the Spirit. We believe that we are called by God to be an intergenerational community and that it is our responsibility to create safe and supportive environments for all children and young people participating in the activities and programs of the Sword of the Spirit.

Within the Sword of the Spirit, all programs or activities for children and young people are run by regions or local communities. For that reason we require each region and each local community of the Sword of the Spirit to have a Child Protection Policy to serve and protect them. These policies support our staff and volunteers in putting into practice the Sword of the Spirit’s commitment to safeguarding the welfare of children and young people.
