Feminist Webs Newsletter - July 2020

With lockdown easing, we will be thinking about how to safely restart or increase our face to face work with young people again. We are all developing our Covid-19 action plans and risk assessments and thinking how to engage with young people. Have a look below for some guidance from National Youth Agency.

At this time of year we would usually be celebrating Pride across the country by joining activities, taking part in parades and celebrating our lesbian, bisexual and trans young people. This year, things are looking a little different, but there are still opportunities to engage with LGBT+ celebrations and show our support.
