We are collating information below that we hope will be useful to our members and others.
We send our solidarity and support to frontline workers: cleaners, carers, healthcare staff. You can join the NHS Volunteer Responders here.
Here is some wise advice on stabilising yourself from Dr Aisha Ahmed, including: "give yourself a proper mental adjustment window ... your body and mind WILL adjust to the new normal. Without that mental shift, you'll fall on your face."
Francois Matarasso's new blog explores challenges for creative practitioners, and his hope that "Perhaps this crisis will prove to be the opportunity to rethink our mutual responsibilities, so that, when we are on the other side, we will start working towards better, kinder societies". Where you can, offer support to people that need it, including those isolated or unwell, but also - crucially - health and care workers, who are struggling with lack of resource, especially in hospital settings. If you are able, you might also want to consider donating to a food bank or a hygeine bank.
