We are committed to building valuable, long-term partnerships founded on shared values, defined expectations, complementary skills, and open communication.

The aim is to create relationships where mutual benefits and enhanced reputations are delivered to all stakeholders and their communities, and programming is achieved to its highest potential.

Collaboration with local government

Experience has taught us the best way to realise local government’s vision for community is by taking a collaborative approach to strategic planning.

We are an active partner seeking to support long-term improvement in participation levels and wellbeing outcomes in the communities in which we serve.

Communication with partners

A feature of all our projects is transparent communication and reporting. YMCA centre managers, supported by regional staff, have a strong focus on regular communication and updates, as well as engaging with partners in annual planning.
