As part of ensuring a safe church environment for all people, particularly children and vulnerable adults, the lay clearances process outlines requirements for lay people with roles in our parishes and congregations to obtain National Police Checks, Working with Children Checks, attend Safe Church Training and complete a Safe Ministry Check.

The Lay Safe Ministry Clearances policy outlines the clearance levels and roles that fall into each level, with supporting documentation and step by step instructions on how to obtain these clearances.
