​The church should be a place where young people can come to know and experience the love of God through those who care for and work with them.

The Anglican Diocese of Melbourne expects that leaders in children’s and youth ministry in the church will pay careful attention to their duty of care.

The resources on these pages are intended to help you think about some of the issues that are involved.

The Duty of Care Handbook and its appendices can be downloaded from this page. These policy documents are provided to give clear guidelines of minimum standards for duty of care.
