The Y’s of Australia are committed to providing opportunities for all children and young people to grow in body mind and spirit and be protected from harm.
At the Y Whittlesea, the safety, welfare and wellbeing of children, young people and vulnerable adults is our highest priority. The right to be able to enjoy a safe environment free from threats, abuse, neglect or exploitation is our service commitment.
We work hard to ensure the safeguarding of children and young people is embedded in our culture and at the forefront of everything we do. We know that it is not just about having the right policies and procedures, it is also about being proactive.
To uphold the highest standards of safeguarding, our staff and volunteers undertake training to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all children.
