Following the latest Government announcement the National Youth Agency (NYA) have confirmed that we are expected to move to AMBER outdoors from 29th March (information below to aid with planning).
Readiness level: AMBER
This means: Limited group sessions can take place outdoors only. No visits/ trips or residential activities.
Maximum group size:
- Activities involving young people: 15 young people plus 5 leaders.
- Scout Network programmed activities (non social): 15 young people plus 5 leaders
- Adult activities (non-social) with no young people present: check local government guidance
Note: members requiring the direct support of a carer may do so with the carer being counted as an addition to those number permitted above.
Note: young leaders can be counted within the young person or leader numbers for activities with young people.
Note: Activities should be in a single location and no trips/visits or residentials are permitted. This includes hike based activities and those which move a group around a number of locations in one session.
