The National Youth Agency (NYA) has published updated guidance relating to managing youth sector activities and spaces during COVID-19, following the government’s latest announcements on local tiers and guidelines.
NYA, as the professional statutory and regulatory body for youth work in England, has developed youth sector specific advice and guidance, in consultation with Public Health England and the Health and Safety Executive. The guidance will support local providers, leaders, volunteers and young people to remain safe when engaging in youth sector activities. It is intended to guide the youth sector in opening up services for young people at the right pace and time.
This guidance must be used in conjunction with the readiness framework and your existing safeguarding policies and procedures. It is complementary to government guidance on social distancing, travel and other measures which must be adhered to.
NYA hosted a webinar on 15 October 2020, to address the updates. You can watch a replay of the NYA guidance webinar on YouTube.
If this information pertains to you, you should also read the guidance in full via the NYA website.
