Open/Close Menu Wigan Youth Zone is a purpose built, state-of-the-art youth facility in Wigan town centre which opened in June 2013.

We have conducted a detailed risk assessment and modified aspects of service delivery and building use in line with restrictions and guidance.

National Youth Agency Guidance

We have marked out 2-metre spacings within the Youth Zone to help young people and employees maintain this distance. We will remain vigilant and enforce this rule as best we can recognising that the participants need to take responsibility for their actions.

All members will need to have their temperature taken prior to entry and put hand sanitiser on – if a member’s temperature is 37.8 degrees or higher they will not be granted access to the building. Hand washing /sanitising facilities will be available at many locations throughout the building and regular handwashing/sanitising will be encouraged.

There will be regular cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces and objects that are frequently touched by young people and staff during sessions. A deep clean will be undertaken prior to opening and regular cleaning will be scheduled for when the Youth Zone is closed.

We will continue to follow guidance from the government, NHS, National Youth Agency, Public Health England, Health and Safety Executive and wider stakeholders including the local authority, local schools, and Wigan Council.

All plans will be closely monitored and may adjust in response to internal and external factors.
