Eikon in communities

We have suspended all of our face-to-face work with children and young people in community settings in line with official government guidance. For more information please see:

Eikon’s staff and volunteers are continuing to work insofar as we can do so safely without risking anyone’s health. We are doing all we can to support children and young people remotely via video calls, telephone and other safe and appropriate means of communication.

We have also launched a Virtual Youth Club on Facebook and Instagram:

This page will be updated with details of our face-to-face work when it’s safe for it to resume. In the meantime to find out more, get in touch.

Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

We are working hard across the organisation to keep young people, staff, volunteers, visitors and facilities users as safe as possible. We are following all current government guidelines. We will continue to adapt our plans and deploy extra measures as additional public health guidance is received.

We are engaging with local and regional bodies and with partners to inform them of our organisational situation and ensure that everything we do complies with current advice and regulation.

There may well be further need to adjust some of our services as the situation develops. This will only be done after carefully considering the needs of everyone affected.

As an organisation we are committed to providing you the information you need to be able to make informed choices and where necessary changes to your usual activities in our building and services.

We have completed Covid-19 specific risk assessments and put in place appropriate actions to manage the risks identified. This is an ongoing priority for us and these risks assessments will be reviewed regularly to ensure that we are complying with government guidance to minimise transmission risk.
