The Child Safety & Protection Network is a collaborative network of mission agencies, faith based NGOs and international Christian schools intentionally and strategically addressing the issues of child protection. The Network began in September 2006 and now has 71 organizations who are part of the network.
One of the outcomes of the network collaboration has been the creation of mandatory minimums called "Best Practice Standards for Child Safety" which were adopted by the Network organizations formally in January 2009.
The Network also facilitates sharing of resources in both prevention and response and collaboration and consultation on response teams.
Joining the Network involves submitting an initial application, attending at least one CSPN meeting in your area of the world within a year to make use of the resources and training available and taking advantage of the networking opportunities, then working towards establishing your agency child safety policy in a way that meets the Best Practice Standards.
