This report presents findings from surveys (n=113) completed by Youth Justice Workers (YJWs) about the Government’s Covid-19 public health measures introduced on March 12th and young people participating in Garda Youth Diversion Projects (GYDPs). 1 In this report, we provide a descriptive overview (based on YJW observations and their local enquiries) of young people’s compliance with the measures and how Covid-19 and the restrictions have impacted their lives. The Survey’s questions asked YJWs about (1) young people in their GYDP and compliance with the Covid19 public health measures, (2) the observed impacts for young people’s, particularly in terms of their behaviours since the measures were introduced, (3) how Covid-19 and the restrictions have affected GYDP work practices, and (4) the requirements for frontline work with young people in GYDPs arising from Covid-19.2
