Young Bristol Statement – Coronavirus (COVID-19) (19/03/2020)

19/03/2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Following the latest guidance from the Government, Public Health England and Bristol City Council, Young Bristol has made the difficult decision to suspend delivery of our programmes with immediate effect. This means the following programmes will be closed from Thursday 19th March 2020:

  • Community Youth Clubs
  • Creative Programme
  • Instructor Training Scheme
  • Outdoor Activities*
  • Over 55s Club
  • Sports Programme
  • The Respect Project
  • Youth Club on Wheels
  • Youth Voice

We will keep this position under regular review and will communicate updates as and when.

The closure of these programmes is not an easy decision, especially for those young people who rely on our programmes as safe and supportive spaces, however as an organisation we have to consider the wellbeing of our staff and young people. Therefore, all staff will also be working remotely from Friday 20th March. During this period all staff will still be contactable by their work email and/or phone.

During the uncertainty of this difficult time, we aim to continue to provide positive, inspiring and engaging alternative opportunities for young people to engage with us. Please follow us on FacebookTwitterInstagram and Youtube, where we will soon be sharing these opportunities.

We thank you for your continued support, and look forward to reopening the doors to our programmes at the earliest opportunity.

For information regarding outdoor activity bookings and further updates please refer to our website www.youngbristol.com.

Yours sincerely,

Lee Williams

CHIEF EXECUTIVE
