Millions of people around the world have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. With schools, universities and some youth organisations closed; many people are confined to their homes to reduce the spread of the virus. 

Please note: it is paramount that anyone considering undertaking Award activities outside of the home in areas affected by the COVID-19 outbreak must consult their local public health or relevant government authorities before doing so.
