We’ll be updating this page as the situation evolves and government advice changes.

Is the 2022 programme going ahead?
Yes. We anticipate that programme delivery will continue in-person or hybrid.

What will happen with interviews and Selection Workshops?
Much of our selection process lives online already – the application forms and video interviews continue as planned. We have been running virtual selection workshops through 2020 and 2021.

Can I meet the team?
We are limiting face-to-face for now, however our team is available online and ready to help. Drop us an email and we’ll be able to answer your questions.

Are you hosting events?
Yes. Our events are virtual, in-person and hybrid. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for all the latest details for how you can join and take part.


In March 2020, we switched to fully remote delivery. We have since moved to a hybrid model and will adapt this according to future government guidance.

Our studio is open, with strict hygiene protocols. It is an open plan co-working space in the RSA building and the Year Here team work from their onsite office.


We’re in constant contact with our partners about the repercussions of Covid-19 and the lockdown. In March 2020, our focus shifted quickly to Covid-19 response on the ground. Since then, we’ve begun conversations about how we can support the rebuilding of vital support systems – and the longer term project of reimagining society, without the structural inequalities that have become more apparent than ever. We are open to new partnerships.
