In confusing and isolating times like these, responsible communication remains vital. With everyone voicing their opinions, it’s hard to know what information is credible and what is based on rumour and assumption.
Knowing which sources to trust isn’t always easy, but many organisations — including many of our partners — have put together useful resources to help provide clarity at this time.
We’ve compiled a list of these to help you cut through the BS. Being a London-based company they are somewhat UK focussed so please let us know of any other great international resources we may not know about. We’re in this together, after all!
Stay healthy, stay sane, stay informed!
