At Kopua the gospel values of love, dignity and justice demonstrated by Jesus remind us that the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults is an integral part of the life and ministry of the Church.

Safeguarding is promoting an environment within all of our faith communities which respects and acknowledges the dignity of everyone, and where people feel valued and safe.

National Safeguarding guidelines

These guidelines form the basis for our Church’s commitment to respond with compassion to those who have suffered abuse, and to ensure polices and practices are in place… to provide a safe and nurturing environment for all.
