Resources for Safe Online Ministry

  • A two-page brochure on Online Safety produced by the Office of the Children’s Guardian. This provides simple, down to earth advice and is particularly suitable for providing general advice via Parish and school websites. It can be accessed here.
  • Three new training webinars all related to grooming awareness from Catholic Professional Standards and the National Council of Churches Safe Church Program.  Of particular interest might be a webinar Introduction to Unwanted Contact & Online Grooming. This is free and further information and registration is available here.
  • The National Council of Churches of Australia also has a very useful listing of COVID 19 resources which can be accessed here.  A number of these provide advice about how to talk with children and vulnerable people about COVID 19.
