Scottish Government guidance for the CLD sector updated

Scottish Government guidance for the CLD sector has been updated, with changes coming into effect from 26th April 2021. Specific guidance for youth work will be updated and published in advance of the 26th April, to reflect these changes. This table outlines the permitted activities under each protection level from 26th April. Until that date, youth work organisations should continue to operate in line with the current youth work guidance.

The Scottish Government have also published updated School Visits guidance. This guidance is also applicable to the youth work sector and will be reflected in the updated youth work guidance.

Key dates:

  • Immediately – local Day Visits (no transport), and peripatetic work in school grounds/local green spaces
  • 10th May – Day visits (can include transport), and expeditions (max 9 inc instructor, single tent occupancy)
  • 31st May – Residentials (if school and centre is in Level 0/1/2, single occupancy in dormitories, further more detailed guidance to be published mid-May)

Please note this is all subject to confirmation following review w/c 3rd May.
