Child Safety

Mosman Youth is dedicated to ensuring a safe environment for children and young people. Our recently adopted Child Safety Policy outlines our commitment to fostering a culture of child safety. This policy establishes expectations for everyone involved in providing services or organising activities for children and young people at Mosman Council owned facilities. Your safety is our priority.
