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 50 agencies who have participated in the network in the past or have shown an interest in becoming 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, establishing your agency child safety policy in a way that meets the Best Practice Standards and attending at least one Network meeting in your area of the world This allows inclusion in the mailings about upcoming meetings.

To view and complete the initial application click on the "Membership Application" tab at the top of this page.

If you have additional questions, contact our Administrative Assistant.


One of the key tools that the Network offers is its conferences where we gather to share ideas and resources concerning proactive approaches to child safety and protection. For more information on CSPN Conferences check out the "News" and/or "Events" tabs above.


By sharing ideas and practices from the network agencies, many forged in extremely difficult and painful situations, a body of best practice knowledge has emerged. Network members have access to this body of knowledge.


An extensive library of documents, policy papers from member agencies, powerpoint and presentation notes are available for download to registered site members.


Member agencies have member care staff all around the world, providing close support and encouragement in all areas.
