WHO WE ARE.

In the summer of 2006 a number of organisations gathered to look at issues of child abuse and safety in the international missions community. Numerous agencies had been working on current and historical investigations, policies, programmes, etc., but no one had brought different organisations together.

The clear shared need and common desire for resources, networking and collaboration across the world brought about a multi-agency community that is rapidly growing.

We are a network of mission agencies, faith-based NGOs and international Christian schools. Our heart, calling, and mission is to collaborate across the globe with other Christian organisations to connect, educate, and protect through effective child safety programmes.

We help create environments worldwide where children’s wellbeing and safety are a priority.

SOME OF OUR CURRENT MEMBER ORGANISATIONS

Having an established and trusted global safeguarding programme is vital to us. CSPN’s training courses and collaborative membership network has been hugely beneficial. We could not have developed our programme, both in prevention and response, without CSPN’s help.
