Part A – Covid-19 Declarations
1. I am aware of the risks posed by Covid-19 and am comfortable with YL Ireland's ongoing approach to managing the impact of the virus within youth settings, in accordance with government guidance. I will not let my young person attend any YL Ireland in-person event or meet-up if they are ill with Covid-19 or are otherwise self-isolating due to the virus.
Part B – Contingency Measures
In case of injury/illness, I give permission for a trained first-aider (where available) to administer first aid to my son/daughter as the first-aider considers necessary in the best interests of my child.
In an emergency, if I cannot be contacted, despite all reasonable attempts to do so by the leaders, I give permission for my son/daughter to undergo any medical/dental treatment, including the use of anaesthetics and blood transfusions, as considered necessary by the medical authorities. I acknowledge that any medical costs are my responsibility to settle.
I expect my son/daughter to behave in a manner that will not cause concern to YL staff/leaders, that even though they will give the utmost priority to the safety of the young people in their care, they cannot be held liable for behaviour that leads to accident, injury, or increased health risks to others. I understand that if my son/daughter misbehaves, the organisers may forbid them from further participation and require me to collect them at my expense. If they cause deliberate damage to property, I agree to pay for the cost of replacement.
5. I understand that Young Life has a zero-tolerance approach to alcohol; weapons; and illegal drugs, solvents and substances. I consent to my son/daughter being sent home from any activity according to our Prohibited Items Policy if there is reasonable suspicion that my child is carrying such prohibited articles.
Part C – Other Necessary Declarations
I understand the nature of the activities and associated risks and that the programme may include a brief Christian message. I give consent for my son/daughter named on this form to attend the event and fully participate, including any off-site excursions, except for any elements of the programme which I have listed above. I am aware that I can opt my child out of attending any aspect of our programme at any point, by contacting my local YL staff person.
7. I confirm that I am the parent/guardian of the Young Person(s) named on this form and therefore have full legal authority to make these Declarations.
8. I understand that I am solely responsible for ensuring my son/daughter travels to and from each event, activity and meetup safely and on time, and in accordance with any transport expectations that are communicated by the YL event organisers. The only exception is where prior arrangements have been made with me by YL staff/volunteers to pick up/drop off my child, in accordance with the YL Driving Young People Policy (available upon request).
I consent to Young Life Ireland processing the personal data related to my son/daughter participating in YL in-person activities, meet-ups and virtual events as defined above and in order for YL to fulfil our Covid compliance obligations. I understand that all data which I provide you will be handled confidentially and held in accordance with applicable data protection legislation (including the General Data Protection Regulation).
If at any point I have any questions or concerns, I will seek to address these as soon as possible by resolving them informally with my local YL Ireland staff person or volunteer. I am aware that I can follow the YL Ireland Concerns and Complaints Guidance at any point if I feel that a more formal process is appropriate. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-41S1pqmJTr0xdC3NkQ_zr22QFrc65uL/view
