Abuse Prevention Training - Required for all Volunteers & Leaders


Thank you for your interest in serving at Unionville Alliance Church! U-Protect is an abuse prevention training that helps us in providing a safe environment for all our vulnerable groups including children, youth and seniors. We are committed to creating a safe environment and protecting each person within our church family and the larger community. There will be zero tolerance for abuse.

All prospective Ministry Personnel and Ministry Assistants are to submit to the recruitment and screening process managed by the U-Protect Team. The recruitment and screening process includes attending a training session, submitting applications, references, completing an interview and submitting a Vulnerable Sector Check. With the successful rollout of our U-Protect education comes a slightly longer period for processing due to number of applications. We would appreciate your patience as we deal with this backlog. For this interim period, we hope to get back to you in 2 business days.

Information received is confidential and is being gathered for the purposes of maintaining a safe environment for children, youth and vulnerable adults, as well as those who serve in these ministries at Unionville Alliance Church.
