Blackburn with Darwen to Enter Tier 3 Restrictions
Blackburn Youth Zone will remain open
A message from Hannah Allen, Chief Executive, Blackburn Youth Zone
Following this lockdown announcement in Lancashire, we just wanted to let you know that we are still open as we have been for the last few months.
Blackburn Youth Zone provides young people somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to. It is an essential service for young people and especially vulnerable young people, as BwD enters level 3 we must ensure safety of young people and support them in their time of need. The NYA (National Youth Association) has developed a guidance that BYZ has been following whilst COVID-19 is present.
We continue to follow all guidance from The National Youth Agency and take advice from BwD public health. We have a range of measures to keep our members safe including social distancing, hand washing stations, small groups, booking systems and one way systems. You can find our detailed risk assessments here https://www.blackburnyz.org/policies/
Blackburn Youth Zone service is needed now more than ever and will continue to keep our doors open in a safe way, following all guidance available.
