UKH SUPPORT SERVICES
To offer further support through the coronavirus pandemic we are working with industry partners to offer services and initiatives to help members through this time of uncertainty, to ensure that we are in the best shape possible to bounce
back post COVID-19.
Our support includes helping furloughed staff, guidance, upskilling and service offers. Take a look and see how we can further help you through this extraordinary situation.
Redeployment of industry staff
