Informational Update

Members in England

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.

We are where possible running are running on-line meetings via Zoom or Teams.

Please contact one of the leaders to find out whats available.
