TYCS is a not-for-profit public company limited by guarantee. We are a charity, with a constitution that reflects a benevolent purpose focused on enabling young people to find pathways away from dependency, away from crime and away from disadvantage. Pathways that enable them to participate in the community and live independent lives. This is enabled by donations and grant assistance that pays for educators, for the cost of building school and community skate facilities (education buildings), for resources for our mentors and volunteers and for the infrastructure that enables all this to happen.
Governance & Structure
Our company is the context for all our work, whether in remote communities or in metropolitan areas. We fundraise and identify ourselves in the context of a global benevolent organisation with the brand “Skate Aid”, however every dollar is accounted for as part of the work of TYCS.
Skate-Aid-Australia is therefore a public brand of Trinity Youth & Community Services Limited. As a Not-For-Profit Public Company Limited by Guarantee we have a non executive Board and are in process of registering with the Australian Charities & Not-For-Profit Commission. Our application for Deductible Gift Recipient Status is in progress and is based on the benevolent, educational and community development objectives of the company.
