Latest Youth Sector Guidance for Lockdown 3

6 January 2021

NYA announced yesterday that the youth sector can remain partially active with strict adherence to NYA guidance for the RED readiness level – here   The paper sets out what is permitted across the youth sector under Red Readiness level. This document should be read alongside NYA’s version 4.2 guidance – here

In summary, the RED readiness level allows the following activities only, subject to a Covid secure action plan and risk assessment:

  • Online and digital youth services
  • Detached/outdoor local youth services
  • 1-2-1 sessions with vulnerable young people (indoors)
  • Small group work sessions indoors with vulnerable young people (consistent with social distancing guidelines). Sessions can be provided via invite only during periods of lockdown

Youth sector providers are allowed to provide support and services to vulnerable young people indoors during periods of RED readiness. Youth sector providers should work within the spirit of lockdown and must not provide open access/drop-in services at this time.
