Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is the age range strict?

The age range for congress is 18-35 but we are not strict on this. If you are between 35-40 and want to attend we are very happy for you to do so. Do not hesitate to register if you’re in this age range.

2. Will there be translation services available?

Yes, we will have translation services but at the moment we have costs to cover the main track only. We have 4 tracks and the main one will be translated into any language required but we don’t have enough funds to have translation services in the other 3 tracks as of yet. This may change. We will, however, have sharing sessions each day in each language so you will be able to talk in your language.

3. Will childcare be available at the event?

No, childcare will not be provided as part of our event. We did consider it but it didn’t seem workable for us. You can bring children to the event if you wish, we just don’t have any childcare available for them.

4. Is congress like a HDYO camp where HDYO funds your trip?

No, congress is different to a HDYO camp where everything is covered by our funding and the young person pays nothing. For congress, young adults will have to pay their own way to attend, but we do have a scholarship fund available to those that may need some help getting there.

5. Are meals included in your registration?

Yes, we will provide meals throughout the day at the venue and evening events.

6. Is the event just for young adults?

No, it is also for professionals from the HD community, as we will provide daily training for them to attend if they wish.

7. What hotels can we stay at?

HDYO has special rates at a range of nearby hotels, you can see them here or book your own accommodation:
