Safe Ministry with Children

The Uniting Church in Australia offers its sincere apologies to all children in the Church’s care who have suffered sexual abuse of any form, whether that abuse happened after Church union in 1977 or before that, in predecessor Churches. 

Due to the work of Australia’s Royal Commission into Child Sexual Abuse, the responsibility for Australian faith-based organisations to engage their staff and members about child safety has never been clearer.

The Uniting Church has developed a National Child Safe Policy Framework. The Framework, Implementation Plan, Implementation Checklist and more are available at
