Above Protection Level 4 - Updated guidance for the delivery of youth work from Tuesday 5 January 2021
Following the announcement of new Covid-19 restrictions by the Scottish Government yesterday, the guidance for the delivery of all youth work services in mainland Scotland and Skye has now been updated.
From Tuesday 5th January until at least Monday 1st February 2021, the preferred methods of delivery for all youth work services in mainland Scotland and Skye is online.
The updated guidance states that youth work delivery should be delivered online and face-to-face support should only take place for the following purposes:
1) providing support to education hubs for the children of key workers and vulnerable children and young people
2) providing support for most vulnerable young people who do not have other means of support and cannot access support remotely.
In circumstances where support to a vulnerable young person is required, this should be provided on a one-to-one basis with restriction measures in place.
