Motiv8 COVID Update

Following the recent press conference on 5 January 2021, there have been a number of changes but we wanted to let you know we are still here for you.

We continue to follow Government and National Youth Agency Guidance and are still able to provide services with additional measures in place to do this in a controlled and safe way.

From the 5 January 2021 there are different requirements for the delivery of youth sector activities and NYA have confirmed that we can undertake the following support,

  • Online and digital youth services
  • Detached/outdoor local youth services
  • 121 sessions with vulnerable young people (indoors – appointment only)
  • small group work sessions indoor with vulnerable young people

Please see the NYA Tier 4 guidance in our download section or available here.

Our local centres will continue to be staffed virtually (and in person when needed) during this time for those who need support or are in crisis. We recognise these are uncertain times and you may feel unsure about who you can turn to. Please know we are here for you, you are not alone. We would urge you to seek support; if we cannot help you directly we will do all we can to find someone who can.
