For further information on support available, see Senscot’s COVID 19 Resources Page – which is updated regularly and include legal information on Job Retention Scheme as well as template letters. It has been noted that those organisations whose staff are funded through Government finance should not be furloughing staff. It is worth checking with other funders if staff can be reallocated to COVID 19 work using existing funding rather than put them onto furlough. Currently those that are on furlough cannot be used as volunteers in their own organisation.
SCVO has a comprehensive Information Hub including a directory of needed and offered services.
