It would be helpful if UKSPA members feel able to share the advice that they are giving to occupiers and staff and email these to firstname.lastname@example.org. It would be particularly useful if you could share details if you are creating an online tenant community and providing specific advice on business support to occupiers at this time.
The UKSPA Covi-19 survey has asked for more details of their companies that are responding to the pandemic and these are being added to the Hub.
