SportsAid’s mission is to help and recognise talented young athletes and their families. In doing so, we take our responsibilities seriously, especially in terms of athlete wellbeing. On this basis, we intend to make decisions with athletes and their families in mind, as well as our supporters, partners, staff and volunteers. The purpose of this communication is to provide an update on the approach being taken by SportsAid to the rapidly developing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

SportsAid has a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) which means we can operate as a team even if we have to work remotely. All staff will now be working from home for the foreseeable future following the Government’s announcement yesterday (16 March) evening. Such a situation may lead to slight changes to our typical daily or weekly routine, but we will still be contactable (main phone line redirected) and continuing to work on the various aspects of the charity’s activities.

As things develop and new information and advice is provided by the Government and the NHS, we will provide a further update should anything significantly change from SportsAid’s perspective. It is a strange and quite unique situation. Please be assured that everyone at SportsAid is doing everything they can to continue the work of the charity and act with the best interests of its wider family in mind. Please keep an eye out for other updates and information from SportsAid!
