Welcome to the Reporting Abuse training module, designed for all employees or volunteers working with children and families in Not for Profit organizations, including School Districts, in the North Peace and Northern Rockies.
The Child, Family and Community Service Act requires anyone who has reason to believe that a child has been or is likely to be at risk has a legal duty to make a report to a child welfare worker or directly to the police if a child is in immediate danger.
The Family Friendly Initiative, funded by the Government of Canada’s Social Development Partnerships Program, was created to increase the capacity of Not for Profits to support families in the North Peace, Northern Rockies by developing shared community based tools.
This module is part of an online staff orientation program that addresses identified common training needs.
This online staff orientation program is designed to:
- Increase knowledge of effective practices in northern rural communities
- Make efficient use of existing training resources
- Implement timely and cost effective strategies through innovative use of technology
- Facilitate the coordination of training events
- Increase collaboration and facilitate joint service delivery initiatives
- Increase retention of employees in key positions
The partners for the development of the Reporting Abuse module include the Family Friendly Initiative founding partners, the Ministry of Children and Family Development and Nenan Dane_zaa Deh Zona Family Services Society.
