Safeguarding Young People during the COVID-19 pandemic

Child protection laws and responsibilities remain in force.

Youth Genesis Trust (Ltd) still has a duty to promote the welfare and safeguarding of children and young people. Local Authorities are still managing safeguarding concerns and will continue to follow the immediate protection procedures set out in Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018.

Youth Genesis Trust’s body of work has moved to detached Streetbase engagement, 1:1 work and small group work for vulnerable young people, following the latest lockdown announcement and until Government guidance has been reviewed and it is safe to return to opening our normal provisions.

Youth Genesis Trust will still be working to our Safeguarding policy and in line with our risk assessments, and working to our usual processes and procedures should a concern be raised.
