Resources on returning to work during the pandemic


A summary of resources for voluntary and community sector organisations returning to work. 

This is a wide topic and within the voluntary sector there are so many different types of services and organisations.

We would encourage organisations to read the government guidelines, conduct a risk assessment and adapt the workplace to the guidelines relevant to the risks that your staff, volunteers and service users face.


Upcoming training
