National Youth Agency (NYA) – Managing youth sector activities and spaces during COVID-19 (4th November 2020)

The National Youth Agency (NYA) as the Professional Statutory and Regulatory Body for youth work in England has, in consultation with Public Health England and the Health and Safety Executive, developed youth sector specific advice and guidance. 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.

Everyone should read the guidance document below and follow the recommended actions and requirements. This guidance is intended for use in England. (Version 3) Click on the image below to view the guidance document.

** Following the recent government announcement (31st October 2020), we can confirm that the youth sector moves into RED on the readiness framework.
Please read the new Red Readiness Fact Sheet below.**
