​Safeguarding Children and Young People

Ballarat YMCA is committed to the safeguarding of children and young people. ​

The YMCA supports the concept that in our society every child and young person deserves the right to thrive, learn and grow, be respected; valued and enabled to become an effective adult member of the community.

Our organisation ensures that each person involved in the delivery of services to children and young people understands their role and the behaviour we expect in safeguarding children and young people from abuse and neglect. 

The YMCA's National Safeguarding Unit has an aligned strategy across all Ys in Australia, developed to ensure that all Y people understand and excel in their shared responsibility to make sure children and young people can feel safe and be safe at the Y, in their famiiles and within their communities.

YMCA Ballarat is a recognised Safeguarding Children and Young People organisation accredited by the Australian Childhood Foundation.
