Ecclesiastical Insurance launches new anti-abuse protection policy guide

Ecclesiastical Insurance has published a new guide for its Resource Centre, aimed at helping organizations that supervise children, youth, and vulnerable adults to develop an abuse prevention policy.

The insurer’s “Guidelines for Developing a Safety and Protection Policy for Children, Youth, and Vulnerable Adults” highlights relevant issues surrounding abuse and has procedures on how organizations can create their own anti-abuse policy.

“This document provides detailed information on the components of an abuse prevention policy, what should be included in a policy and how to develop one,” said Ecclesiastical vice president of claims Jane Williamson. “And we are here to help.”

On top of launching the guide, Ecclesiastical has added that it is available to help clients tackle abuse claims.

“Should the worst happen, our experienced and empathetic claims specialists handle abuse claims with the utmost sensitivity, respect and confidentiality,” commented Williamson.

The new guide is the latest in a series of resource documents Ecclesiastical has produced for its Resource Centre, which can be accessed through the company’s website.
