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