Our Response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in the UK & Ireland

Your safety and health matter most.

We care deeply about the safety and wellbeing of everyone connected with the Young Life International family in the UK and Ireland and around the world.

We continue to run - but differently.

We continue to love and support young people across our nations in this time of national crisis. When teenagers long for community more than ever, we are committed to finding creative ways to engage and support them.

Whilst clubs, connect groups, and hangouts with teenagers continue to happen virtually, we are hosting safe, indoor or outdoor person-to-person meetups and small gatherings as country governments' restrictions allow, and subject to our Person-to-Person Interactions Procedure (available upon request). Local staff are in communication with parents to discuss suitable and safe arrangements.

Young Life have created and curated digital resources for continuing spiritual growth and discipleship during this time. Check out Young Life’s digital discipleship resources at discipleship.younglife.org

We continue to make informed decisions.

We are continually monitoring developments and take into account government advice, Young Life's global precautions, and the concerns of the communities in which we serve.

 

2021 Summer Camping plans

We are making plans for both residential and local camping options and will continue to monitor the current status and government guidelines. Safety remains our top priority. We value continued prayers for wisdom as we continue to seek creative ways to engage with young people.

Let's support each other.

Whatever your age and however you're connected, please reach out to your local staff person​ so that we can support you well.

Also, we ask you to stand with us - members of our UK and European family have already suffered first-hand with coronavirus - please pray for them. As a worldwide movement, we are praying daily using Psalm 91 over a period of 91 days, and we invite you to join us.

Your support in prayer, giving, and friendship is sincerely appreciated as we continue to bring hope to young people.

Thank you!
