Safe Ministry with Children

When making updates or changes to registers and records, it is important to remember the following:

  • Legislation requires that all volunteers and employees who interact with children through church activities are registered.
  • A registered person's training must be current and documented.
  • Sensitive records should be stored securely with access limited only to people required.
  • While records can be archived after seven years, records which relate to children should be kept for 21 years.

The preferred record-keeping platform for Safe Ministry with Children is now UCare. UCare has been designed to meet the requirements of both state legislation and the Uniting Church. Email to get your congregation started with UCare.
