COVID-19 – Information and Resources

Life as we know it has temporarily changed due to COVID-19. Due to the measures needed to help prevent further spread of the virus such as self-isolation and social distancing, a large number of us are now spending the majority of our time at home, including work time. The current advice from the Scottish Government is to stay at home:

  • Only go outside to pick up essential food, for health reasons, for one piece of exercise a day (alone or only with people from your household), or for work where this is absolutely essential and cannot be done from home
  • Stay two metres away from other people
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • If you do go outside, wash your hands as soon as you get home

As such, we can no longer do many of things we used to take for granted such as go to the gym or library, head into the office for work, visit friends and family, or attend events.

We have therefore put together a bank of resources and information that you might find helpful over the coming months. These include links to things you can do at home such as online training that you might undertake to keep up your professional development while you can no longer attend in-person conferences and events, resources to help you look after your physical and mental health while social distancing, and fun things you can do to keep busy.

We hope you enjoy exploring the pages below and that you find them helpful in some way. We’ll be adding more and more as the weeks go on and we’d also love to hear from you if you have any suggestions for useful resources that we could share. Get in touch with us if so – we are working from home but are still contactable and are here to support you. In the meantime, take care and we hope to see you in person at one our events when things are back to normal.
