Reports & Policies
Youth Bank Policy
The Castlemaine Circus have created a suite of 32 Policies to safeguard the proper running of the Circus. We were able to create this Youth Policy Bank with a grant from our local council, Mount Alexander Shire. If you are a youth organisation in the shire, please contact us for a link to all our policies. They are here to be shared.
Child Safe Standards
The Castlemaine Circus has created a Child Safe organisation and meets the requirements as set out by the Commission for Children and Young People. From July 1 2021, the CCYP updated the standards (moving from 7 to 11 standards) and Castlemaine Circus will be working towards meeting the new requirements.
The Castlemaine Circus continually strives to create an accessible and inclusive space. We celebrate diversity and work to provide a safe physical and social space for all ages, abilities, genders and cultures. We are considerate of diverse genders in our verbal and written communications. We are aware and respectful of gender fluidity of participants, avoiding assumptions about gender and we use non binary language. We are welcoming with our signage and we have non gender toilets.
