Coronavirus (COVID-19), 16th March 2020 [14:40]

In this rapidly changing environment the safety and welfare of our beneficiaries, external colleagues, staff and volunteers remains of paramount importance. We are carefully monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Our current policy is to carry on with business as usual, in line with the advice of the government and NCVO (the National Council of Voluntary Organisations), the national umbrella body for the charity sector. We’ll be keeping this under daily review. For the moment, we intend to run events as scheduled, subject to the policies of our partners and venues. Should any of our events be postponed or changed we will inform anyone who is registered as soon as possible. For face to face meetings, we are seeking other ways to have conversations with clients and beneficiaries and minimising travel and will be liaising directly with these people.

We will update this page and statement as more information become available and as outlined above.

We urge anyone who is concerned about coronavirus to refer to the NHS guidance.
