The UK risk level of Coronavirus is assessed as moderate, however, the risk to individuals remains low. At Shaw Trust we are continuing to follow advice from the World Health Organisation, our national public health bodies and government. Precautionary measures are in place and we are monitoring the situation as it develops.
Current official advice is for all services to remain open and provide virtual services as required. We are therefore not reducing any of our face to face activity. To minimise infection we are implementing a stay-at-home policy for staff displaying any ‘flu like symptoms and requesting all visitors to our sites follow hand washing and public health advice.
The DWP has published information on coronavirus and claiming benefits on the Understanding Universal Credit website. This page will be updated if there are any changes, so please do check back regularly.
In addition, the DWP has also produced specific guidance for employers and businesses.
