SWANSEA Youth Hub development officers are continuing to work with young people throughout lockdown.

The teams, supported by partners YMCA and Barod, are out and about in the city five nights a week making the spaces and places where young people spend time safer.

In normal times they are busy arranging activities for young people within youth clubs and centres across Swansea.

But since the current restrictions have been in place they have taken to the streets this winter to support young people as well as meeting them online.

Cllr Elliott King, Swansea Council’s Cabinet Member for Children Services, said:

“Throughout the latest lockdown, our Youth Hub development officers have continued to be here for the young people of Swansea.

“The pandemic has been a difficult time for all ages and young people are no exception.

“Due to restrictions, youth clubs have had to temporarily close, however with lockdown restrictions set to gradually ease over the coming months they will be opening back up as soon as it is safe to do so in line with the government guidance.

“In the meantime, the team and our partners will continue to support our young people both in the place they meet outdoors and digitally to ensure they have the information and support they need at the time it’s needed.”
