Covid-19 Update

Following the roadmap published by the Government on the 22nd February we will be able to begin offering outdoor activities for all members from 29th March 2021.

We are still following Government guidance and we are working closely with The National Youth Agency and Manchester City Council therefore may need to amend these plans if any new guidance is published before this date.

Our online offer of #VirtualMYZ will continue so please keep an eye on our socials to see what is available.

If you, or a young person you support, are struggling please don’t hesitate to get in touch as we are still able to offer both 1-1 support, and in some instances support groups –  just simply press the Message Button.
