NCVO: Your organisation and coronavirus

10th March 2020


The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) has collated information which is intended to help you decide what steps you and your organisation may need to take in light of the covid-19 virus.

Their guidance covers:

  • What’s the best way to prevent the spread of covid-19?
  • What do you need to do to protect staff, volunteers and visitors?
  • Should your employees take sick leave?
  • Should you cancel your events?
  • How can you support your beneficiaries/service users?
  • How you can develop a contingency plan and how will your insurance be impacted?
  • Will there be financial implications?
  • How are charities helping?
