Safe Church Training Courses

Safe Environments– our community response to child abuse and neglect

The Uniting Church has for many years offered the opportunities for members of our Uniting Church community to participate in training to understand their legal obligation to report harm or risk of harm to children and young people. 

Courses are held as needed in venues around the state.

See the training-dates page at https://safechurch.ucasa.org.au/training/ for upcoming dates.

Safe Environments: Through their eyes

This full day training session is to raise awareness and understanding of the legal obligation to report concerns of children / young people who are or may be at risk or harm. This course is the full day – 7 module package as developed by the Department of Human Services and is being held at the Corner Uniting Church. It is not the Department for Education's RHAN-EC course.

Cost $30.00 per attendee. Morning Tea provided, BYO lunch.   

Bookings are required and can be completed via this link.  


Called to Care Orientation Sessions

For our ministry to be effective we need to incorporate safe and best practices in leadership, in our programs, our actions, our behaviours and within our facilities.

Called to Care promotes and assists the Uniting Church community with relevant information about ensuring a safe physical, emotional and spiritual environment for us all.

Called to Care orientation sessions are now being offered around the state. Key congregational office holders and key leaders will gather to explore what it means to create a safe community.

Called to Care is people centred when considering:

  • Pastoral care
  • Risk management for People and Property
  • Healthy governance
  • Up to date employment/volunteer practices

Safe Environments – Through their eyes Training will continue to be conducted separately and complements this program

Please check the training dates calendar now for opportunities to participate.


Code of Ethics Training

Code of Ethics refresher sessions are provided for annual participation for Ministers and those in ministry placements. Participation in Code of Ethics Refreshers is required every year following completion of the full Code of Ethics 'The Essentials' course run by Uniting College for Leadership and Theology (UCLT).
