GOVERNANCE OF THE Y
As a not for profit organisation we are committed to helping build strong kids, families and communities in an ethical and sustainable way.
Here, we provide an overview of the organisation’s governance, and associated practices and policies.
Board of Directors
The Board is committed to the highest standards of ethical behaviour and accountability. It operates under a Charter, the purpose of which is to promote high standards of governance and clarity of their own role and responsibilities.
Broadly, the role of the Board is to provide leadership and strategic guidance for YMCA Central in addition to overseeing management’s implementation of strategic initiatives.
The Board meets on a regular basis to contribute to and approve the strategic direction of YMCA Central and significant organisational strategic initiatives. Its emphasis is on outward vision and strategic leadership, cultivating a diversity of viewpoints, collective decision making and safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults.
