Hi, hope you are all keeping safe & well. Brú Youth Service is looking into new ways that we can connect & interact with young people online while the centre is closed. More info on this coming soon. Young people over 13 can still contact us Mon-Fri between 5-9pm on our Facebook page through Messenger.
Some information on COVID19 for parents about keeping kids safe as well as ourselves.
Remember to keep social distancing and to keep washing them hands.
Bru Youth Service will be taking measures to engage with young people during this challenging time. One of these will be regular Facebook posts with factual and accurate information about COVID 19 and how to stay safe and healthy.
We will be using this to interact with young people on a daily basis of how to wash your hands correctly, signs and symptoms and much more and how you can help the spread of this virus.
The most important one is making sure your safe and checking in to see how you are doing.
We know this is a stressful and boring time, but we need to stay safe. We need to watch out for each other with social distancing (2 meters, 6ft) stay active and healthy. Eating the right foods and talking to grandparents and friends through social media (face time, phone calls etc).
Stay safe and we will be in touch very soon.
