Whilst we are unable to meet in person we are meeting online every Friday 5-5:30pm using Zoom. We are following the usual safeguarding guidelines such as having the correct ratio of adults per number of young people and not using the private chat function with a young person. The waiting room function is enabled and we use a password to prevent ‘zoom bombing’ (where a person joins the call with the purpose of sharing harmful material).
About Zoom – Zoom is a free ‘cloud based conferencing service’ (video calling) app/website that uses both audio and visual (although both can be turned off). More information can be found on the Zoom website here.
Consent from parents/carers is needed to allow young people to join.
If you have any questions or would like more information about Zoom please do get in touch with Hannah (Youth Worker).
