CSPN Conferences and Trainings

One of the key tools that the Network offers is its conferences where we gather to share ideas and resources concerning proactive approaches to child safety and protection.  We hold both Regional Conferences and our Annual Conference, which includes our annual business meeting for our members.

Response Team Trainings (RTT) is one of our most popular services. A common question is ‘What happens when I get a child safety report?’ The RTT aims to equip our members with the tools and protocols to respond effectively to a report. 

Our newest training curriculum, Programme Essentials Training (PET), has been completed recently.  Programme Essentials is geared toward policy makers and leaders who have responsibility for implementing and developing child safety programmes. Please see our EVENTS page for upcoming training dates.

Resource Library

CSPN provides resources related to child safety and protection.  An extensive library of documents, policy papers from member organizations, PowerPoint and presentation notes are available for download to registered site members.   

Global Networking

Member organizations have member care staff all around the world, providing close support and encouragement in all areas.

Here is what one of our newest European members has to say:

”Up here,“ there is not much opportunity for sharing personally or profiting from the experience of others. That makes our membership with CSPN so valuable to me. Everything I know, I have researched and read – actually hearing and seeing so many passionate protectors of children is not only an invaluable resource of knowledge, but it also touches my heart.“

Elements of a Child Safety Program

By sharing ideas and practices from the network organizations, many forged in extremely difficult and painful situations, the Elements of a Child Safety Program has emerged. Network members have access to this body of knowledge, both in narrative and rubric format, that walks through the seven areas of an effective CS program.

International Training

CSPN offers child safety training in different regions of the world each year.  Although COVID has affected our ability to hold in-person events, we have adapted some trainings to online platforms.  See the upcoming Events listings to find an opportunity to assist your international staff in getting the training that they need and that you require.


By joining CSPN as a network member, your organization then has an affiliation with our organization  We give you access to the CSPN logo which you may place on your own website, displaying the value you place on protecting the children in your communities as you partner with us.

Peer Mentoring

By providing a close network of like-minded members, peer consulting and mentoring is available as members share their expertise and resources with each other.

Online Community

This is an area for members to engage in conversation with one another, share files, and subscribe to child safety and protection topics. Currently, there are several discussion boards open; we also have an active Community group called POTLUCK which holds monthly Zoom meetings to share resources and ideas.  Contact CSPN if you would like to join this group (for members only!)
