Youth Cafe Thursday Nights 6pm – 8pm
for School years 7, 8 and 9
We are delighted that after such a long time, we are able to welcome young people back into the Phoenix Centre.
Although the set up will be slightly different to pre lockdown times there will still be plenty of opportunity for your children to socialise and have fun in a relaxed environment with their friends. Entry is still £1 and will this will include a simple meal – the tuck shop will also be open.
There is an expectation that young people will be wearing masks, with the exception of those that are exempt, and social distancing will be followed in the centre. Additionally, there will be a maximum of 15 young people allowed into the centre during any session, once signed in a young person counts towards the total of 15 whether they are in the centre or not. If your child wants to attend, we are running from 6:00pm to 8:00pm and would advise they arrive as close to 6:00pm as possible.
Please be assured that we are adhering to guidelines set to ensure that the centre space is as safe as possible. As per guidelines from the national youth agency, the government and Public Health England the following is in place: –
- An assessment that the risk to staff, volunteers, young people and the community can be safely managed.
- The ability to meet core government guidance
- Enhanced cleaning arrangement are in place.
- We have the ability to comply with social distancing requirements.
- We have the ability to ensure that hygiene levels are maintained, including for frequent hand washing/cleansing with hand sanitiser.
All young people attending will be given a registration form on opening evening which will need to be completed before their return. In addition to the fact that we have always needed contact details for parents/carers it is really important that we can contact you should anybody in the centre have a case of Covid 19, to ensure self-isolating can be adhered to.
Once again we are really looking forward to seeing the young people back, and making some happy memories after so much they have missed since March 2020.
