Is there a suitable and accessible outdoor space you can use for meeting?
Consider cost, drop-off/collection and pick-up while maintaining social distance and safety while there.

to attend due to Covid-19 symptoms, shielding, work or carer responsibilities.
Do leaders have up-to-date disclosure (DBS/PVG/Access NI) checks?
Take into account extensions on re-checks granted due to lockdown.
Will rst aid be available if needed?
This should be provided either by the venue/activity provider or through qualied Girlguiding volunteers.
Is the rst aid kit available and stocked with appropriate PPE? This includes additional gloves and masks.
Are all members’ details up to date on GO?
Have you planned activities that can allow for social distancing?
Have you added Covid-19 related risks to your risk assessment and submitted it to your commissioner for approval?
If you are using an external provider, have you checked that they are following appropriate social distancing and hygiene measures,
