This document was produced in 2020 and originally aimed to provide ideas and links to
resources for virtual match activity, including outdoor activity, in the context of Covid-19
NIVN has updated the document as of January 2023.
Please follow your service policy and procedure as well as national and local government guidance. All activity should be pre-agreed with local IV services.
Other factors to consider are length of match and level of trust and rapport between the IV and young person; age of the young person; communication skills and preferences of the young person and volunteer; disability and mental health; the young person’s placement and access to social media and IT resources.
