Message from the AWBP Chair, Andrew Swayne
In the last week we seem to have stability in terms of lockdowns around most of Europe and the US with very limited international travel. We are seeing a few early signs of restrictions being eased in parts of Europe but they are patchy. Close to home I’m pleased that the grants being issued locally have had a good first week with 350 registrations being processed and £4.6m being released. It’s worth noting that registrations are being processed in date order.
As some of the government focus moves to care homes we should remember this is an important part of our business community and I hope the supply chain is getting them the PPE they need.
We must continue to support our families and employees as it is inevitable that some would have been affected by COVID-19. As the crisis continues, resilience is something we will all need to work on as individuals and in looking after our businesses. I wish you a safe week and let’s see what comes from the lockdown review.
