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 firstname.lastname@example.org to get your congregation started with UCare.
