Non-Governmental Coronavirus Advice

The Government has put together a couple of lists which are handy to have – the first is public bodies, organisations and charities have produced additional resources that may be useful to employers and employees. This includes organisations such as ACAS, Business in the Community and Companies House

The second is a BEIS produced list of Trade and Business Organisations that are providing sector-specific advice on Coronavirus. It’s not particularly comprehensive but it’s a start.
