A number of agencies have shared advice on how to manage staff and volunteers in relation to the outbreak of the Coronavirus. Given the evolving nature of the Coronavirus situation, we will update this page as new advice and information emerges. 

Advice for employers and employees

ACAS' information is particularly useful for employers whose staff may need to self-isolate in response to government guidance.   Employees may be concerned about arrangements for sick pay particularly if they need to self-isolate in line with current government and NHS guidance.

General public advice

General advice and information from central government can be found here and commonly asked questions are answered by the NHS here.   

Sector advice

Public Health England offers specific sector advice and information  for Health, Transport, Education, Employers and Social Care - with additional information about how to self-isolate here.

The VCSE Sector

NCVO's 'Your Organisation and Coronavirus' has collated advice and information particularly useful for the VCSE sector, covering:

  • What’s the best way to prevent the spread of the virus?
  • 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?

NAVCA member Voluntary Action Sheffield (VAS) has published helpful advice outlining the steps they are taking to minimise the spread of the virus in their building, which may be useful in helping you prepare your own action plan.
