IVE’s response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) situation

Dear colleagues,

At this time of unprecedented disruption, IVE are working hard to respond proactively and bravely to the growing uncertainties affecting us all. We are altering our own status quo as an organisation to make sure that we’ll be able to continue to support you, through training and other activities that will help you manage the acute challenges you are experiencing as individuals with families, as business leaders, as school leaders and as young people in or out of school or college.

So… we’d like to hear from our clients and partners urgently, so that you can tell us what you need in relation to a targeted on-line offer that will support you and/or your organisation. We’ve already got ideas, so please get in touch via your established IVE contact, or email hello@weareive.org 

What we are currently doing in relation to contingency and what you can expect from us in the coming weeks:

We will continue to listen closely to Government advice as it emerges and will keep you updated regarding any further changes to our operation.
