Practicing Shared Guardianship

Safe Ministry with Children: Elective Training Module

We want each and every person to be safe and to feel safe and respected as they participate in Uniting Church activities and events. We expect all adults and leaders to work together to help make sure this happens. This is what we mean by a culture of shared guardianship – it’s a positive culture in which everyone plays an important role.

Our shared guardianship extends to all vulnerable persons in our communities and congregations. It’s never too early to sow the seeds of personal safety.

This short course provides strategies on how to apply our shared guardianship role in ways that prevent sexual abuse or exploitation occurring. We support each other by teaching children, young people, parents and carers, about personal safety.

To enrol in this course please contact your presbytery.
