How To Start Guide

This Guide provides key definitions and suggested ways of beginning to implement Safe Church work. The actual systems, processes and practices you develop will vary according to your context. Implementing Safe Church policies and practices will take time. This Guide is intended to enable you and your provincial/diocesan Safe Church team to begin the work. It may be easier, as well as more cost effective and efficient, to organise Safe Church work at a provincial level rather than by diocese. However, this will depend on the context within which your particular province and dioceses operate.
