Help and Advice During Covid-19

Covid – 19 Update

We at DYW Argyll have, like most of you, had to adapt our strategy to deal with the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. We are adopting a policy of continuing to plan for events we have scheduled in the coming months, but with an open mind that we will have to react to our host organisation, Argyll College UHI, and wider government policies/advice.

DYW Argyll has already seen the unfortunate cancellation of a number of upcoming events and realise that this will continue to happen as the days and weeks go on. The most important thing is that you, our colleagues, partners and young people are kept as safe as possible and we will postpone, not cancel plans where practical. You can still contact us via the info on our contact us page. Best Wishes from Team DYW Argyll!
