Our Uniting Church’s values which apply to the care and protection of children include:
We will deal with children compassionately and with an understanding of their vulnerabilities.
We respect the boundaries of professional relationships and respect the rights of every person to feel safe while in contact with our services.
We will seek justice for those who have been harmed.
We will work together to create a culture of individual and collective responsibility for the safety and wellbeing of children and to create friendly, welcoming spaces for children.
Leading through learning
We will be leaders by ensuring our governance embeds a culture of safety and undertaking a continuous improvement approach to the safety of children and to offering child friendly service.
