Coming Back Safely After Covid - Information Session

7 December 2021
Starts 11am

Do you run a community or voluntary group and are thinking of re-starting face to face activities but are confused about the current guidelines?

Life stopped due to the Covid-19 pandemic and all these months later some community activities and groups have not returned yet. A great number of individuals rely on community and voluntary groups to get them out of the house and for some it is the only time they see other people.

Some say that things are "back to normal" but not everyone feels that way. As restrictions have eased there are still a number of groups and activities which have not resumes "normal service". Some do not have the confidence to come back to meeting face to face or even to venture out of their houses.

This session on Tuesday the 7th December at 11am aims to give you accurate information on what the current guidelines are and give you some simple guidance on how to come back safely.

This session aims to cover:

  • Current Guidelines
  • Keeping You, Your Volunteers and Your Members Safe
  • Managing Risks
  • Guidance on Delivering Activities Safely and
  • Funding

Let's all work together to get our communities back on track.
