In light of the current rapidly evolving situation regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19), Against Breast Cancer have implemented changes to normal working practices to mitigate the potential impact of the virus.
Our top priorities are the health and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers and supporters. With this in mind, the changes have been designed to ensure we are able to continue an uninterrupted and reliable service, minimising the impact on our supporters and their fundraising efforts.
Measures so far taken include implementing our work from home policy which includes systems and procedures allowing staff to work remotely whilst remaining available to assist our supporters.
We remain committed to delivering the best possible support to our fundraisers and are confident that there will be little if any disruption to normal services. However, as the situation evolves, we may be required to review or change our plans. We will update this page as may be required.
Please bear with us, already many fundraising events including the London Marathon have been postponed which will mean many charities like us will face increased challenges with a possible impact on donations as a result of Covid-19.
We will, of course, keep you updated on any further developments with regards to the impact of the virus.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
