04 November 2020 -
Following the announcement of a four-week lockdown in England from
Thursday 05 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
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 02 December, when the lockdown is currently scheduled to end in England.
