Manningham Uniting Church operates under the guidelines of the VicTas Synod’s Culture of Safety Unit. We offer regular UCA Safe Church training, we have a designated culture of safety officer, Lynda Anderson, and we screen all employees and volunteers according to
the Synod guidelines. Our church leaders have current Working with Children Checks.
We offer the following document for your use. You will no doubt have received information and advice from your children’s schools. This may repeat or supplement what you already know but it is important that we communicate about this as a church.
