The National Youth Agency (NYA) have published a COVID-19 readiness framework, which outlines how the youth sector can operate at different readiness levels. The guidance should be read alongside this Readiness Toolkit, which you can read here.

The current NYA Readiness Level is Amber. You can read the Amber Readiness Level guidance here or our summary here.

Update (9th September): NYA have confirmed that despite new restrictions in England, the youth sector is being treated as an essential service and services can continue as before so long as organisations are COVID-19 secure to NYA guidance standards.
