To ensure the comfort and respect of all Parentlink members, the terms and conditions of membership apply to all YMCA Parentlink events, activities and networks.

Conduct

  • Members who wish to lodge a complaint are required to put the issue in writing and forward it to the Parentlink Co-ordinator. All matters will be investigated in a timely manner. All grievances should be addressed with the Parentlink Co-ordinator and no other members as they may feel compromised and reduce their enjoyment of the activities.

    Membership

  • All single parent families shall have access to Parentlink membership. However, where a current member’s ex-partner also wishes to become a Parentlink member, it must be understood that should this cause undue discomfort to the current member, the YMCA has the right to discontinue or refuse membership.

  • All Members’ information shall remain private and confidential and will be handled in accordance with YMCA Victoria’s Privacy Policy.

  •  All other events outside of these (even if organised by Parentlink members) are not endorsed by YMCA and therefore the YMCA takes no responsibility and accepts no liability for any injuries or accidents, which occur at these events.

  • Parentlink members are not permitted to solicit personal information from other members with the intention of using this information to promote non-Parentlink activities.
