Parents and Carers
We believe it is very important that parents and carers feel confident that when their child attends one of our activities or centres they are safe and protected from harm.

Attendance Monitoring
We register every child enrolled on our courses, play provision or in our nursery. Our registration process records emergency contact details and relevant consents.

We understand safeguarding children and vulnerable adults is the responsibility of everyone. YMCA understand that we all have a duty to ensure that the well being and safety of children and vulnerable adults is a priority and is paramount that procedures are in place to deal with suspected or potential abuse or neglect. We have a Designated Child Protection Person to ensure issues are dealt with promptly and to strict guidelines, which creates a safe and secure environment for all.
