Socitm Coronavirus statement

[Updated 13/03/20]

Socitm is keeping the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation under review. The wellbeing of our members and guests is our absolute priority and we want our events to be safe, informative and enjoyable for all.

At the present time, the government’s Chief Medical Adviser still describes the risk of infection to people in the UK as low. Therefore, at the moment our events programme remains largely unchanged. The office in Northampton is operating as usual.

Nonetheless, we have taken the decision to postpone all Share Local events till early April and this March’s Empowering Women programme. So we will reschedule the following:

  • Tuesday 17 March: Share Local London & South
  • Friday 27 March: Share Local Scotland
  • Friday 27 March: Share Local East
  • Monday 30 March Empowering Women
  • Friday 3 April: Share Local North East

However, we know that advice and guidance can change rapidly and we will act accordingly.

We want to assure the Socitm community, and our friends and partners, that we are monitoring the situation closely, carefully and frequently.

Should there be any further alteration to our events programme, all attendees and members will be advised immediately.

If you have any comments or questions, please drop the events team a line at: events@socitm.net.

If you need more information about Coronavirus, please refer to the latest advice from the Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England which can be found at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public.
