GYP is happy to hear from any parents or guardians of the young people who use our services. If you have any worries or concerns about family life that we can help with, or if you just want to get some more information on what we are planning in the next few weeks, please talk to us. Contact Tim Shuker-Yates, the Youth Project Manager on 07775 888904 or email him on tim.shuker-yates@theymca.org.uk

We ask each person to have a parent or guardian fill out a permission form to say they are happy for the young people to attend, this also includes options such as taking images for our Gallery etc.

Confidentiality

GYP is committed to promoting the privacy and welfare of children and young people. We aim to ensure that information about young people is not passed outside the staff team without young people's permission. However, there may be exceptions, when the welfare of a child or young person is at risk, and we are obliged to share our concerns with statutory agencies.

Anti-Bullying Policy

We aim to provide a safe and welcoming place for all children and young people who attend our clubs and events. All staff (paid and voluntary) are expected to challenge behaviour and attitudes which make individuals or groups of children feel unsafe or unwelcome. This includes all forms of bullying, such as physical aggression; threats; name calling; spreading rumours; purposely leaving people out. GYP's policy is to 'condemn the behaviour, not the person'. Although we take steps to challenge behaviour and ensure other young people are not hurt by bullying, we will provide support and guidance to children/young people who bully.

Child Protection policy

GYP follows the code of practice set out by The YMCA. We aim to provide an environment in which there are caring and safe relationships between adults and children. For such relationships to develop, we use informed common sense and sound professional practice.
