Celebrating our people and our communities!

October 26, 2023 Community Impact

Celebrating our people and our communities! Our Community Impact Report was launched at our AGM on 25 October, with highlights from the 2022-23 year.

There are so many incredible stories that make up a year in the life of the Y Ballarat and Y Kinders. Our report showcases some of the achievements and accomplishments of our amazing teams and illustrates the difference that our programs and services make in the lives of young people and their communities.

It brings to life our activities which are designed to strive towards Vision 2030 and encompass the four ribbons of our strategic plan – Community Wellbeing, A Just World, Meaningful Work and a Sustainable Planet.

In a year where we achieved an Exceeding rating in our Safeguarding Independent Review, we recognise how being inclusive, fostering a culture of respect and safeguarding children and young people, is all part of what we do.

From marking the milestone of 20 years of inspired early education, through to demonstrating the impact that Jump Start makes in the lives of disengaged young people, to the launch of new innovations – there’s just so much to celebrate!
