Safe to Grow (6th Edition 2011) - Safeguarding children and young people in the local church

The abuse of children and young people - physically, emotionally and sexually, is a sad fact of life. It is not new. In recent years we have become more aware of the prevalence of abuse and neglect because we have been more willing to listen to chlildren and young people and to take seriously the harm that they suffer. All organisations working with children and young people, including churches, are expected to adopt policies and procedures  to safeguard children and young people in their care.  Safe to Grow is a resource book for Baptist Churches to enable them to implement policies and procedure in their local situations.

Safe to Grow offers:

clear guidance on government legislation and its implications for local church;
a model safeguarding policy for the local church;
a guide to procedures that need to be implemented in order to follow the best practice in safeguarding.

This completely revised edition provides chuches with the help they need to offer a safe environment  to children and young people entrusted to their care, 81 page paperback.
