Welcome to the Portal

Throughout the COVID-19 crisis we have been providing updates and information from Goverment and other sources.

As lockdown eases, we have updated our portal with key information and resources for businesses to use whilst still closed or whilst operational.

 

During this crisis, our staff are working tirelessly to support our members, and other businesses.

 

  • Member updates via our secure intelligence platform

  • Working with key partners including the Met Police and British Transport Police, to monitor relevant crime affecting businesses during this time

  • Updates via social media channels

  • Advice and guidance for member businesses

 

Our COVID-19 Response Pack

As part of our commitment to supporting our members, Safer Business Network is proud to announce the launch of its COVID-19 Business Response Pack – a set of free resources to assist you in operating in a safe and secure way in the current crisis.
 
The Mayor of London has released the information on what this means for London here.
 
The Government has updated its guidance for Restaurants, pubs, bars and takeaway services.
