This is an incredibly challenging time for colleagues across our industry. According to the Office of National Statistics half the UK adult population is feeling increased levels of anxiety now.
We know many are coping with reduced wages; or no income at all, worried about how they are going to keep putting food on the table. Some are self-isolating because they are unwell with underlying health conditions or are elderly.
