Harassment Information (formerly HEART)

You will recall that Upper Valley Presbytery rolled out its Policy on Discrimination, Harassment and Violence in our Faith Community in 2014 and that each pastoral charge was asked to adopt the policy or revise their existing policy to acknowledge the mandate of the UVP HEART team.  Each congregation was asked to display a poster with information on how to contact HEART and the policy itself.

On July 1, 2017 the United Church of Canada announced its new Workplace Violence & Harassment Policy which supersedes our policy in that complaints are to go directly to the Conference Secretary rather than to a local HEART group.  Please replace the poster and policy document on display (or in storage) at your church with the documents attached to this email.

The National Church has also slightly modified its "Sexual Misconduct Prevention & Response Policy" which covers matters not within the previous HEART mandate.  Posted below are the new policies and information as well as a new poster you should post in your Communities of Faith.
