COVID-19 – Youth Action

Following the government update, we regrettably have made the decision to postpone ALL groups for now at Youth Action.

The health of our children and young people, staff and their families is our number one priority especially considering we have staff and children who are highly vulnerable. We are committed to supporting our children, young people and families as best we can in these uncertain times, with your wellbeing and safety at the forefront of our minds.

We are working to ensure all of you remain supported during this challenging period, and your Support Worker is still available by email and phone.
