This Faith and child safeguarding summit provided a platform for religious institutions, faith-based organisations, academics, and religious leaders to come together, exchange insights, experiences, challenges and best practices on child safeguarding in religious and faith-based contexts.
Spread over 4 days, with 93 international speakers, and nearly 2,000 attendees, this summit ran from 8-11 November 2021, and was specifically designed to help give faith organisations a platform to demonstrate their commitment to child safeguarding.
Recordings of this event are FREE to all organisations and individuals that work with, or for, children in faith communities and organisations. We hope you will join forces with us to put safeguarding at the heart of your organisation’s mission!
The more people know about child safeguarding, and the more organisations implement KCS's International Child Safeguarding Standards, the more children will be protected from harm. So, please spread the word! Tell your colleagues, suppliers and your faith community about this event, by sharing #FaithAndChildSafeguarding on social media, or emailing the link to this event website.
Through inter-faith dialogue, this conference aims to create resources that help advance child safeguarding and help accelerate the momentum for child safeguarding to be put at the heart of all organisations and religious institutions.
Joining forces with us means that all organisations, large or small, wherever in the world they may be based, are able to access the most up-to-date information, good practice and proven solutions to shared challenges, and solutions that are relevant to their field of work.
This summit is free for all to attend. But as an independent not-for-profit, we do depend on the generous support given by people like you.
With your help, we can keep so many more children safe from potential abuse, run more free introductory workshops, support more organisations with small budgets, as well as more victim and survivor groups, and reach a much wider global audience. All with the mission of putting child safeguarding at the heart of everything organisations working with children do.
