Staying Safe This Winter

The winter time is a great season for young people to experience different indoor and outdoor activities, and many organisations put on fun new activities. It is important to remember to risk assess any new activities and follow external visits guidance before going out for the day.

We want people to stay safe and healthy while they enjoy the winter so have pulled together some useful resources and links.
