Reuse Network – Covid-19 Response

Posted on the 18th March 2020

The Reuse Network have now taken measures in response to the increasing spread of the virus, Covid-19. This pandemic will no doubt affect all businesses and organisations, so we are working to support our charities and partners as much as possible at this crucial and difficult time. 

Our staff are now set up for home working so that they can self-isolate. Our phone lines are redirected to team mobile numbers so we can ensure our support to can carry on without limitation. 

Across the globe, the majority of us will be changing the way we work, shifting priorities, and changing strategies – we are no exception.

We hope we can still help and answer your questions, so please do contact us at or call us on 0800 085 8339 and your call will be redirected to one of the team.

Charity Support 

Membership services will be reviewed and the staff deployed to find financial support opportunities and support services to help members survive during the time of disruption. (See Guardian Online link below) During this period staff will make contact with the charities we support to better understand the impact of the situation and will record impacts and risks as reported. The Reuse Network team will research financial support packages and other means that may be applicable to supporting the sector during this period and beyond.  

Annual Conference 

The Annual Reuse Network Conference planned for the end of April 2020 is now postponed. We are working with the venue to establish new dates which will be confirmed later in the year. 

All delegates, sponsors, speakers and exhibitors have been contacted regarding this and will be given further information on how content, attendance and fees paid will be handled.
