Detached Youth Work Covid Guidance - 6 November 2020
The UK Federation for Detached Youth Work has produced the above additional guidance following the Government's decision to implement a second lockdown. This document needs to be read in conjuction with the original joint guidance document prepared by the FDYW and the NYA which can be found at https://www.fdyw.org.uk/books .
Both of these guidance documents should be read alongside the NYA updated guidance which has been written in consultation with Public Health England and the Health and Safety Executive, specifically for the youth sector. 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. Further information and advice is available at https://nya.org.uk/guidance/ and the 4th November 2020 NYA guidance seminar can be viewed below.
