Base 51 is a COVID-Secure Environment
We have taken all necessary measures, in line with government rules and guidance from the National Youth Agency (NYA) to ensure that Base 51 is a safe place to work and safe for young people to attend.
We have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment and shared the results with the people who visit and work here
We have enhanced cleaning, handwashing and hygiene procedures in place
We are staying up to date with, and following guidance by the NYA in consultation with Public Health England and the Health and Safety Executive
We have taken all reasonable steps to maintain current social distancing requirements
Where people cannot socially distance, we have done everything practical to manage transmission risk such as providing masks, visors and hand sanitizer
Youth groups of up to 15 people are permitted under the latest guidance and we follow track and trace procedures as well as advising anyone with symptoms not to come to the building.
Counselling and other therapy will take place in both face-to-face and online sessions, depending on the needs of the service user
Other group work will take place within the building and social distancing will be maintained
