COVID-19 Support for Young People

Dumfries and Galloway Council are providing additional support for young people during COVID-19 by setting up 14 Youth Work spaces across Dumfries and Galloway to provide support for young people aged 12 - 18 (S1-S6).

These will be delivered by the Council's Youth Work Service and partners, where applicable.

The Youth Work spaces can only be accessed by referral. Referrals can be submitted by Social Work, Education, Employability & Skills, Youth Services and Third Sector Providers working with young people aged 12-18.

The young people that this is targeted at may be those who:

  • You have concerns surrounding their well-being including mental health during COVID-19
  • Are on or at risk of being placed on the Child Protection Register,
  • Are care experienced young people
  • Are considered vulnerable (using your professional judgement)
  • Are experiencing poverty,
  • Are at risk of offending
