Caring for One Another Through Nurturing a Safe Church Community  

Wednesday 02 May 2018, 07:00pm


            An experienced Service Manager from the Children’s Aid Society, Melanie Fulford will present information and answer questions to support all of us as parents, caregivers, teachers, and congregants in creating safe communites in our churches as well as our wider community.  In particular, this discussion will deepen our understanding of ensuring safety in the children and youth programming at First United Church, empowering our own children and youth, as well as being applicable to other congregational contexts and engagement  in the wider community.  

            The session will include latest legislative updates and requirements, ways to recognize signs of abuse or neglect, and how to respond to a child or youth who discloses information that makes you concerned about their wellbeing.
