Risk Management to Prevent Abuse

Nothing is more important than protecting the children entrusted to the care of your ministry. Risk mitigation is an integral piece of any church protection program and it is critical that leadership learn how to prevent abuse and protect children. There are many benefits to developing a risk management plan, including preventing problems before they occur, preparing ways to react to unexpected situations should they arise, creating a church or ministry that is as safe as possible, and identifying avoidable risks.

Our trusted legal team will help you develop protocols for handling cases of suspected abuse, including how to train your staff about mandatory reporting requirements for any suspected child abuse. We can also help you develop policies and procedures regarding abuse prevention for all employees and volunteers to follow.
