Welcome to the iNetwork COVID-19 Support Hub

 

This microsite was established to act as a central repository for Covid-19 related resources, support, and guidance for the local public sector. Supported and curated by iNetwork, it is open to all public sector and strategic partner organisations, including Councils, Police, Fire, Housing, Transport and Health.

Based on an original Knowledge Hub group, the site contains a library of central and local public sector guidance, policy documents, blogs, news, and reports which we hope will be useful to you and your organisation in your response to, and recovery from, the impacts of Covid-19.

The resource library has been built up through a combination of iNetwork's own research and contacts and user uploads. We warmly encourage any public sector employee with a Knowledge Hub account to contribute any information that they are happy to share from their own organisations to the resources and guidance library.

Through the events tab and latest news below, this site will signpost free events, webinars, and training from across the sector that you may find interesting or helpful in your organisational Covid-19 response and recovery.

In these unprecedented times, it is more important than ever that the public sector collaborates and innovates, we warmly encourage you to use this site to help you accomplish those outcomes.
