Please note that the guidance is frequently evolving please always check current guidance or contact the team before engaging in club & society activity.
Where can we get advice on safe activity for our Club or Society?
If you have a specific National Governing Body or Association linked to your activity, we recommend looking at their guidance in the first instance. The Activities Team may be able to identify a particular organisation if you are uncertain.
The UK government, Sport England and Public Health England have a range of regularly updated advice and information available below:
- Government advice on return to Sport
- Sport England advice on return to play
- NHS coronavirus advice
- Government advice on return to performing arts
- Government advice on accessing green spaces safely
Is there a template risk assessment we can use and edit for our activities?
SUSU has provided a template relating to COVID-19 risk, however, this should be reviewed and amended to fit your specific activity before uploading.
In addition, the University Sport & Wellbeing Team will be providing Risk Assessments for their centres as they are signed off below.
Will SUSU be following the government's Track & Trace system?
By registering your activity through the Groups Hub, this will help with track and trace relating to in-person activity off campus.
For all Sport & Wellbeing and SUSU-run buildings track and trace processes will be in place on entry to buildings. This will most likely involve the scanning of student ID cards, with records being kept for the minimum amount of time required in line with government guidance and GDPR.
For activity not linked to a specific facility, we recommend maintaining a record of attendees, the location and date.
You can find a list of FAQ's put together by the University here.
