Following the announcement of a four-week lockdown in England from Thursday 5 November, the National Youth Agency (NYA) has now issued guidance about what this means for all youth sector activity. From 5 November Scouts and all other youth activities will move to Red readiness level.

This decision by the Government means that there can be no face-to-face activity with young people or adult volunteers. Only online meetings can be delivered until further notice.

We expect these restrictions to last until 2 December, when the lockdown is currently scheduled to end in England.

Getting back together safely - Information for Leaders

We’re working with youth sector partners and the National Youth Agency government body to make sure that we restart safely. There’s a framework and set of guidance that should be followed when your section gets back together, based on the latest government announcements and current readiness levels.
