Ensuring we are
COVID-19 secure

At Youth First we are very keen to ensure the provision of youth and play services for as many young people as possible. The shifting COVID 19 situation has made this challenging to achieve. To this end, we have offered and continue to offer our virtual delivery which can be accessed here: https://www.youthfirst.org.uk/programme.

As from 27th July we are also re-opening a limited face-to-face offer for the Summer holidays. To ensure the risk to our staff, young people and the community is safely managed, we are wholly aligned and in compliance with government guidelines, ensuring we are safe in all we do:

  • We are following national guidance by the National Youth Agency and DfE Out of School Settings guidance, in consultation with Public Health England and the Health and Safety Executive

  • We have carried out COVID-19 risk assessments with results shared with the people who work with, and visit us. 

  • We are working in ‘bubbles’ of up to 15 young people, and the same set of staff members working at any one time at each of our sites.

  • We are limiting activities to those which can be managed as safely as possible.

  • We have enhanced cleaning, handwashing and hygiene procedures in line with guidance, including ensuring frequent hand washing / cleansing with alcohol gel

  • We have taken all reasonable steps to maintain current social distancing requirements underpinned by UK law

  • We have introduced where required a correct level of PPE

  • Where people cannot socially distance, we have done everything practical to manage the risk of transmission

The circumstances surrounding COVID-19 are ever-shifting and changing, and we at Youth First monitor the situation on an ongoing basis. We will inform you if any change is likely to affect your child's assistance to the youth club.
