Trusted source material for people working from home – by Peter Gaskin

There’s a lot of well-meaning Covid-19 support and suggestions hitting your inbox and your social media channels right now. This creates noise and confusion.

We thought it would be useful to see only primary source suggestions . We will add to this listing as and when new trusted sources of information are available. We all have great connections who create and share great content – hopefully this is not competing with their offerings.

Zoom Support during the COVID-19 pandemic

Zoom has created a great resource centre for people new to using the platform, no nonsense, easy to navigate – why go anywhere else?

Mind.Org resources to support your mental health

A solid, trustworthy resource for taking care of your own mental health and those you care for can be found at the MIND website. It has extensive links to other trustworthy advice.
