Safeguarding Children and Young People Commitment Statement

“Mankind owes to the child the best it has to give.”

United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child 1989

  • The YMCAs of Australia recognise that all children and young people have the right to develop and reach their potential in environments that are caring, nurturing and safe.
  • The YMCAs of Australia considers any form of child/young person abuse, inclusive of emotional, physical, sexual abuse or neglect, as intolerable under any circumstances
  • The YMCAs of Australia have a legal, moral and Mission-driven responsibility to protect children and young people from harm and to ensure that any incidents of suspected child abuse are promptly and appropriately managed.

The YMCA supports the Government’s position that in our society every child and young person deserves the right to thrive, learn and grow, be respected and valued and enabled to become an effective adult member of the community. The YMCA supports the concept that a community in which the safety, stability, health, development and learning of every child and young person is protected and promoted throughout childhood.

YMCA Geelong is committed to ensuring that the people who care for children and young people in YMCA programs or services, act in the best interests of the children and young people in their care and take all reasonable steps to ensure their safety. In particular, we are committed to providing an environment where all children and young people are protected from any form of abuse or mistreatment.
YMCA has a duty of care to provide services and places that are safe, open and honest environments that protect children and young people; and where the staff and volunteers who work with children and young people, work within our values of Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility.

YMCA Geelong Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy and Procedures has been benchmarked against the Australian Childhood Foundation safeguard children program and replaced the previously approved Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy approved by the Board of YMCA Geelong Inc. 10/12/2007.

The policy directly addressed the National Council of YMCA’s of Australia Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy approved at the Annual General Meeting on 30/11/2014 and should be read in conjunction with YMCA Geelong’s Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy and Procedures.
