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 onechurchconnect@ucaqld.com.au to get your congregation started with UCare.
