Young people need support now more than ever.
Our youth workers at all Youth Zones across the UK are continuing to support young people every day.
Working closely with their local authorities, partners and other stakeholders we are determined to meet the needs of young people as best we can at this difficult time, as well as support the wider community.
Youth Zones are operating creatively and dynamically to deliver positive and interactive online sessions with a large number of young people, enabling them to stay in touch and stay active in light of the social distancing measures. Live streaming across social media platforms has enabled literally thousands of young people to get involved live with their favourite friendly youth workers, whether it be a member of staff hosting a DJ session with requests, or youth workers answering young people’s questions on a wide range of topics, with conversations over the chat functions.
Youth Workers are reaching out by phone to give support to those we know will need us most and for any young people who want to speak one to one, supporting good emotional health and wellbeing and safeguarding vulnerable young people. Small Zoom groups are enabling us to replicate some of the high quality discussion sessions that great youth work Is built on.
Working closely with local authorities and partners to use Youth Zones as key hubs for coordinating local community responses and sharing equipment or resources, providing food and other support to the community where it is needed.
For further information, please contact us.
There’s a whole host of activities available each and every day across the OnSide Youth Zones network. From fitness to dance, gaming to live Q&As with youth workers – there’s something fun for everyone to take part in!
