Our Response to COVID-19 and how we are Supporting Social Enterprises and Businesses 

 

Updated as of 31 March 2020

 

Covid-19 (Coronavirus) is already having an impact on businesses and social enterprises across the country, so we have reacted quickly to adapt to the new way of working and create opportunities for businesses to survive and thrive.

This page is updated on an ongoing basis with resources to help you weather the storm, and we are hosting virtual events, webinars and workshops, along with opportunities for our member community to support each other.

 

Our Space

We have monitored the COVID-19 outbreak closely and adhered to guidance from the government as well as global and local health authorities, and made the decision to close the Hub effective immediately from Monday 23rd March until further notice. 

As of 19th March 2020, we implemented a “work from home” policy for all non spaced-based employees. All work-related domestic and international travel has also been restricted for all employees until further notice. 

As of 19th March 2020, we suspended all in-person internal member and programme events until further notice, and have rescheduled events to be held online.
