  • What guidelines are you following?

Our teenage groups, trainings and in-person events are necessary for JourneymanUK to perform its function of growing communities to mentor young men.

We are following the Government Guidelines (see section 2.9):

Where and when you can meet in larger groups

“There are still circumstances in which you are allowed to meet others from outside your household, childcare or support bubble in larger groups, but this should not be for socialising and only for permitted purposes. A full list of these circumstances will be included in the regulations, and includes: for work, or providing voluntary or charitable services, where it is unreasonable to do so from home. This can include work in other people’s homes where necessary – for example, for nannies, cleaners, social care workers providing support to children and families…”

Alongside Government guidance we are also taking expert from the Nation Youth Agency’s COVID-19 Guidance.

  • Will there be social distancing at events?

Yes there will be. The transmission of COVID-19 can be airborne which is why the Government has provided social distancing guidelines.

Please keep 2m+ apart from other people throughout the event (aside from those in your social bubble).

  • Can I sing?

Government policy has advised limiting singing and shouting where possible, so please be respectful of others in your actions

  • How will food be served?

You will be responsible for your own food and water, for evening events it is good to bring a flask of hot drink. Some events my provide snacks and water with disposable and compostable packaging but please do think about bringing all this yourself.

  • Should I bring cash onsite?

For paid events we prefer the use of electronic payments to avoid the need for passing money and we encourage transfers (Paypal/Monzo etc.) where possible.

Please ensure that you are at least 2m away from anyone else in any queue (aside from those in your social bubble).
