Lockdown Youth Work


Our teams of youth workers are still out in the communities where we have youth clubs engaging with young people across the county. It is nice to see more young people out and about, especially at the moment enjoying the sunshine and to check in with them to see how they are doing, socially distanced of course. We are currently consulting with young people to see what suitable outdoor activities they would like to do that fit within the current guidelines – we might need to think a bit differently but there’s plenty we can do! We continue to offer our weekly chat n chill sessions and our fortnightly LGBT chat n chill group via zoom, as well as a providing a safe social space, we also look at activities to boost our wellbeing. Another exciting project over the next few weeks is the offer to “time travel from your sofa, ignite our imaginations and zoom through History!” Ignite Yorkshire and Chris Geeson Creative Clubs have got together to give you fabulous facts and interactive activities inspired by North Yorkshire’s industrial Heritage. If you’d like further information on any of our sessions please see our website and Facebook pages, we’re also posting weekly activities on there to keep you busy.
