At the YMCA we commit to embedding our Safeguarding Framework across all our Member YMCA programs and services, and to continue to work towards achieving our mission. In doing this, we commit to providing an environment that ensures the safety and wellbeing of all Children and Young People, families and communities and our YMCA People.
We commit to implementing our Stay Safe, Tell Someone Program by supporting Children and Young People as well as YMCA People to understand that if they see, hear, or feel something that makes them feel worried or concerned, they can tell someone at the YMCA.
We commit to listening to Children and Young People, empowering them to speak up and amplifying their voices. This includes those from diverse backgrounds including our First Nations Children and Young People, those living with disability, those from culturally and linguistically diverse communities and those who identify as LGBTIQA+.
The YMCA NT strictly adheres to all the requirements under the Care and Protection of Children Act and the Education and Care Services National Regulations and the National Law. All educators are required to hold a current Working with Children Check Card (Ochre Card) and a National Police Check. All educators undertake Safeguarding Training and Mandatory Reporting training.
