The power of swimming and water safety should never be underestimated. It can be many things to many people from different walks of life and of all abilities. In a land surrounded by water, the one thing it is to every Australian is a vital life skill.
Many of us take the swimming lessons we received as children for granted. But now older and hopefully wiser, we can stop and think about the barriers people with disabilities face when seeking to learn how to swim.
The Y’s Brightside program offers opportunities for people with a mental illness to improve their physical, social and mental health and wellbeing with access to a Y facility, a customised exercise program and one-on-one support.
On 19th November 2016 YMCA Epping will be celebrating its 50th anniversary. This is not only a significant anniversary for the Epping community but also for YMCA NSW, as the Epping site was the first suburban centre to be opened in NSW.
At the YMCA NSW, we see the safety and well-being of children, young people and vulnerable adults as our highest priority.
It is why we have recently created a brochure for all our members and stakeholders that explains our commitment.
This week marks the 14th annual YMCA NSW Youth Parliament – where more than 160 young people from across the state have taken over NSW Parliament House in Sydney to have their voice heard on topics of public interest including rural homelessness, illicit drugs, aged care and domestic violence.
Volunteers are a wonderful part of our family. In fact, they have been the backbone of the YMCA throughout our history. We wouldn’t be here without the work our volunteers have done over the last 160 years!
