Following government advice, we are implementing our contingency plans to ensure that our services to members are maintained as near to normal as possible, with the needs of our members, staff, volunteers and suppliers very much at the forefront of our minds.
As the conditions and our response evolves, we will provide regular updates here.
Read on for details of our response to the virus including relevant guidance to support you.
Protecting our staff and ensuring continuity for members
We have closed our offices. This means that staff members will be working remotely until further notice. We are replanning the face-to-face aspects of our services and, where possible, finding digital alternatives for delivering them. We will update these pages as our plans evolve.
You can find information regarding changes to our events programme and what to do about cancellations here and on our COVID-19 policy page.
Audit & Risk Magazine has gone digital
We've digitised our magazine for internal auditors so that we can continue to deliver it to members in the current climate.
The new digital magazine not only gives back to the environment, but also speaks to the increasing online world that we find ourselves in.
Training courses to run virtually
Due to the Coronavirus situation, all face-to-face courses are postponed until July. In the interim, you can continue to undertake many of our face-to-face courses virtually.
Our virtual courses allow you to learn and interact in a dynamic online training environment combining video, voice and chat messaging.
