The summary of the below is………….. I recognise the important role the Voluntary and Uniformed Youth Sectors play in supporting our young people and welcome your continued assistance in providing such support in new and innovative ways during this very challenging time.
I have agreed with Executive colleagues a programme of targeted activity during July and August, to support a range of children and young people. This includes permission for youth work settings who wish to do so to provide some limited activities, with a focus on 9-13 year olds and priority those known to youth workers who would most benefit from engaging in youth-led activities.
