Moderator Sharon Hollis presses the computer key to launch the brand new Keeping Children Safe website: ucavictas.org.au/keepingchildrensafe/
Many congregations have waited several months for this website. In a letter to congregations announcing the new website, the Culture of Safety team thanked the Church for its patience and expressed gratitude for the excellent work in keeping children safe already being undertaken by church councils and individuals.
The Keeping Children Safe policy has changed. The new policy, Keeping Children Safe (May 2017) is on the website. Please only refer to this policy from now on. It (along with the many resources) reflects the Victorian Child Safe Standards, the Royal Commission’s Ten Key Elements of a Child Safe Organisation and the UCA’s Child Safe Policy Framework.
