Restarting face-to-face services, social activities and fundraising

[16 July update - Read our latest restarting news here.]

Since April, we've been taking a staggered approach to supporting our groups to restart face-to-face services, social activities, and (most recently) fundraising. We’ve updated our risk-management systems and paperwork to allow this to happen in a COVID-safe way, in line with governmental guidance.

  • All plans and dates remain subject to change depending on governmental announcements.
  • All permitted activity is subject to COVID/number restrictions in each nation/area.
