Safe Places

We believe that CCVT will be doing better at building Communities of Hope and Compassion, and developing Leaders to lead them, when each place of ministry and mission affiliated with CCVT is a safe place for everyone to grow in their discipleship of Jesus and in their relationships with one another.

CCVT is committed to being a safe place for all people. We value diversity and do not tolerate any discriminatory practices. We are committed to the inclusion and empowerment of all people, and believe all people have the right to have their views and opinions valued, especially on matters that directly affect them. We actively work to create a culture of safety and employ transparency, accountability and risk management practices to prevent abuse from occurring. CCVT has a zero-tolerance policy for any type of abuse and will report all allegations and concerns for the safety of vulnerable people to the appropriate authority.

CCVT aims to provide Affiliates with a range of user-friendly resources to assist them in creating a culture of safety. This includes a variety of policies, templates, sample forms, training options, and advice.

This website will be updated regularly with the most current information.
