The uncertainty they face means young people need the support of youth workers and youth services now more than ever.
Youth Zones across the OnSide Network are working closely with their local authorities, partners and other stakeholders to temporarily reshape their offer to provide integrated services that best meet the needs of young people and the wider community as the situation evolves.
The wellbeing of young people, staff, families, visitors and the most vulnerable in our society is always our absolute priority. This means open access sessions which attract thousands of young people across the UK every evening and weekend have regrettably needed to be paused.
The OnSide Youth Zones Network is working on a number of creative and dynamic solutions to ensure we can continue to support young people within current guidelines around social distancing and isolation. Each Youth Zone’s approach will likely vary according to what is needed locally, drawing on a range of different options, which may include:
Each Youth Zone will use a range of different approaches to support the area’s most vulnerable young people whilst reducing social isolation for their members.
Naturally our team will stay very close to the detail and are maintaining agile plans so we can respond quickly and appropriately to this highly dynamic situation.
We will keep you informed of the latest developments via this section of the website [and contact you directly if appropriate.]
