What is the City’s duty of care for Youth Service programs and events?
In a youth drop-in environment where young people are not registered in programs and events, individuals are free to come and go as they wish.
If a young person does leave the program/event:
- Staff do not ask where they are going.
- Contact their family to let them know they have left the program/event.
- Drive them home.
- Take any responsibility for them after they leave the premises.
In a program or event where the participant is registered, the City is responsible for that young person within the timeframe of the program/event and staff will remain at the program/event until all participants have been collected. Parents are expected to be on time to pick participants up.
Occasionally the centre or program may be cancelled/closed due to unforeseen circumstances. We will endeavour to give advance notice. Young people and their families must make their own arrangement in these circumstances.
