Safe Church

Our Commitment to Safety

Lugar Brae Uniting Church is committed to ensuring children's safety by implementing Child Safe Principles across all church activities and services. We maintain a zero-tolerance policy towards all forms of child abuse and are dedicated to safeguarding children from harm.

The Uniting Church in Australia 

 

Under the guidance of the UCA National Safe Church Unit, the UCA Child Safe Principles were developed  in response to recommendations from the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. Amendments to the Children’s Guardian Act 2019 (NSW) empower the OCG to ensure that the Child Safe Standards serve as the primary framework guiding child-safe practices in organizations in New South Wales.

Lugar Brae Uniting Church embraces the National Child Safe Framework, requiring the implementation of the 10 Child Safe Principles across all UCA entities. These principles play a vital role in establishing systems aimed at preventing child harm.
