Children’s, youth and families ministry
The UK Government published guidance on Protective Measures for Out-of-School Settings
on 1 July. There is some related Guidance for Parents and Carers of Children Attending Out-of-School Settings
. ‘Out-of-schools settings’ (OOSS) includes extracurricular clubs, uniformed organisations and religious settings offering instruction. We take this to be relevant for Junior Church groups, youth clubs, Boys’ and Girls’ Brigade, holiday clubs and the like. However, this applies only in England as in Wales, church building are not yet open for general meetings.
This document includes safeguarding, general guidance and further thoughts and ideas to share with your church.
