New Virtual Youth Hub
Here at East Riding Voluntary Action Services (ERVAS), we have recently developed a new Virtual Youth Hub to provide young people with a space to connect with other young people, as well as offer information to parents and carers and those working with young people. We have included the following sections:
- Information for Young People
- Information for Parents and Carers
- Information for those working with Young People
- Keeping People Safe
- Updates and information relating to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
- Helplines for All
We would like to encourage as many youth organisations as possible to register on the platform, so that they can provide a space for their young people to connect. We have included a forum on the site, this is a space for youth groups to promote activities and encourage discussion between young people that would usually attend their activities.
To access the virtual youth hub, please visit https://www.ervas.org.uk/youngpeople/virtual-youth-hub/.
The build of the website has been supported by our current funders who have allowed us the flexibility to adapt and change our services to meet the needs at this time. Our funders include the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside administered through the East Riding Community Safety Partnership, The National Lottery Community Fund and Orsted – East Coast Community Fund.
Devan Witter, Website Manager and Development Officer for ERVAS said: “We are really pleased to launch this website today; it’s something that we have planned to do for some time. We are really thankful to our funders for allowing us to be more flexible with our ways of working and helping us to make this possible. I hope that we can encourage as many people as possible to visit the website and benefit in some way.”
