The latest Guiding Framework to support the delivery of youth work services states that youth group trips, outings, excursions and residentials can take place across Scotland, provided expectations before delivery and risk assessments are in place, and they do not involve travel into or out of a Level 3 area.

Youth work groups may travel through areas subject to higher protection levels but should make every effort not to stop in a higher level area. See page 16 of guidance for full travel details, and pages 8 and 9 for specific guidance on residential trips.
