We are continuing to work closely with the Government on this fast moving situation, we have, and will continue to call on Government for decisive, bold action to support our sector in the days, weeks and months ahead. To do this effectively, we need a strong evidence base. Therefore we are asking you to complete this short, fortnightly, survey which will give us better insight into the extent to which manufacturers are: continuing to operate, furloughing their employees, accessing government-led financial support, and offer an indication of when trading conditions may return to normal once the lockdown ends.
The pandemic has underlined the importance of our industrial base to maintaining our national prosperity and wellbeing. Through ingenuity and innovation, UK manufacturers have been at the forefront of the national effort to tackle the COVID-19 outbreak. If you are willing to be a case study for our policy campaigning activity please do let us know through the final question of the survey.
We will be sharing this data through a fortnightly Covid-19 Manufacturing Monitor, which will be accessible via our Covid-19 Hub webpage. We hope this will also act as a useful benchmarking tool for your businesses to understand how your peers are operating during these challenging times.
This first survey will close at 5pm on Monday 27th April 2020. You can complete the survey here
