The most up to date version of the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth (DCEDIY) Covid-19 Guidance for Youth Organisations has been issued.
In line with the cautious moves out of lockdown nationally, it indicates that youth organisations need to plan for “an outdoors summer”.
One change of note which will support your planning are guidelines around transport, which now fall in line with public transport guidance:
- This means transport at 50% capacity with all public health guidance observed (regarding mask wearing, social distancing etc).
- However, transport can only be used to bring young people to either outdoor activities or young people in crisis to centre based work.
We will continue to update you on our ongoing engagement with DCEDIY regarding the Covid-19 Guidance for Youth Organisations on behalf of the youth sector.
