The National Youth Agency have done a full review of their guidance to reflect the latest advice from national government, working closely with Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).
In line with recent government changes to local restrictions in parts of the North West, including Manchester, the National Youth Agency (NYA) and Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has also reviewed the readiness level for the affected areas.
The readiness level will remain at AMBER, which is NO CHANGE from the previous level. This means that planned activity can go ahead, keeping in mind the latest relevant guidance provided by the NYA.
As with previous changes in lockdown restrictions and national updates, NYA are not issuing separate local guidance for youth and play providers, but are keen to support you to work within the national frameworks provided by NYA and other stakeholders (e.g. Play England) and for you to make decisions which work for you and your organisation. This guidance is being reviewed weekly, at a local and national level.
