Young people, staff and visitors must follow public health guidelines and LYS protocols which include:

  • Wear a face covering
  • Adhere to social distancing
  • Maintain good hygiene etiquette
  • Group numbers must be less than fifteen
  • Register with reception at the respective youth space

Although our youth spaces have reopened it will not be feasible for all projects/groups to return to face to face activities.  As a result, LYS will continue to engage with young people through online and more traditional platforms such as phone and email.

In relation to our youth clubs, LYS is engaging with Youth Work Ireland in relation to the safe reopening of our youth clubs and youth cafes and will update accordingly.

Our detached youth work projects, which are located in Ballycummin-Raheen, Limerick City Centre & Garryowen are out and about on various evenings with staff adhering to social distancing.
