Looking after you, your family and business during the coronavirus pandemic
Welcome to our COVID-19 coronavirus guide to looking after you, your family and business.
During this very challenging time, we hope you’re staying safe. The rapidly developing news of the spread of the coronavirus pandemic and how it is impacting on our families, friends and businesses is a huge concern for us all. Understandably, people are worried about the general economic outlook and to their own personal finances.
In our comprehensive guide, we’ve provided information about what financial support is available to help individuals and businesses through the COVID-19 outbreak and how to look after your well-being.
The Government created new legal powers in the COVID-19 Bill, enabling it to offer whatever further financial support it thinks necessary to support businesses. On 17 March, the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, announced an unprecedented package of government-backed and guaranteed loans to support businesses, making available an initial £330 billion of guarantees – equivalent to 15% of the country’s GDP.
This was on top of a series of measures announced at Budget 2020. The Government announced £30 billion of additional support for public services, individuals and businesses experiencing financial difficulties because of COVID-19, including a new £5 billion COVID-19 Response Fund to provide any extra resources needed by the NHS and other public services to tackle the virus.
During this difficult time, it’s understandable to be bored, frustrated or even feel lonely. You may also feel low, worried or anxious, or be concerned about your work situation or health or that of those close to you. Everyone reacts differently to events and changes in the way that we think, feel and behave. It’s important that you take care of your mind as well as your body and to get further support if you need it.
In our comprehensive guide, we also look at how to work more effectively from home and keep fit and healthy during a period of self-isolation or lockdown, which is vital for our physical and mental well-being.
