As an essential service, HideOut is still able to remain open during the lockdown period. However, we have had to limit our services to specific support groups, 1 to 1, digital and outreach activities. All 1 to 1 support group activities will be arranged on an invite only basis during the lockdown period.
We are disappointed about these further restrictions but understand that this is for the best interests of our wider community and we are still pleased that we can continue to support those young people that need our services the most.
The HideOut Youth Zone team have put in new safety measures that adhere to government guidelines. Providing our services whilst protecting the health and wellbeing of young people, employees, volunteers and the wider community is our primary focus.
Strict capacity management, social distancing and hygiene measures are in place that are in-line with guidance from the government, Public Health England, the NHS, Health and Safety Executive, the National Agency and wider stakeholders, including Manchester City Council.
The HideOut team is committed to keeping you all updated via our website and social media channels, as and when any new guidance becomes available.
Despite the current circumstances, we are still taking on new members. Please click here if you’d like to sign up as a member. Hopefully, we will be able to hold more delivery sessions in December, depending on the regulations.
Accessing activities at the Youth Zone
In order to ensure capacity management, we are asking members to pre-book activities via our website prior to attending. This will be a temporary measure until we are able to offer a full open-access provision for young people.
Please do not hesitate to call us on 0161 511 3777 if you have any questions. Thank you as always for your ongoing understanding and support during this period.
