Covid – 19 Statement

“Firstly, I would like to say that Glasgow CAN is very aware as an organisation that the Covid-19 outbreak is going to have a huge impact on freelancers and small organisations in so many different ways and we are here to support you. As an organisation we have implemented home working from 17.03.20 and the core team will be based in their own homes until the government advise it is safe to go back to co-working spaces. The core team are constantly thinking about ways we can continue to support our members and people that access our organisation during this period where people are mostly in their homes. We have cancelled all face-to-face events or activities for the foreseeable future. I would just like to say that my thoughts are with you all during this very difficult period and please email me asking for any advice or support and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Stay safe everyone.” – Hannah Justad[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
