As owners, it is important that we protect the wellbeing of our team of over 90 people. Since we last updated you on our response to the Coronavirus outbreak, it’s clear that the situation is progressing rapidly. We continue to follow government guidelines closely. As a result, we believe that the socially responsible thing to do is to close our offices. As we communicated last week we are still open for business but this means that our teams are now working remotely.
We have a great team of dedicated people at LIFT and they have worked hard to make sure everything is in place for us to continue to function remotely. This means we can still speak to you when you need us via phone calls, emails, Skype and WhatsApp. Please remember that your advisers are also still available in the usual way. All of our teams are accessing our systems remotely via secure “VPN” networks, which means that your data remains secure, despite the fact the office is closed.
Any post will be opened while Royal Mail continues to deliver. However, if you do have documentation to send back to us, many things can be scanned and your adviser will be able to help if you have a query about which documents this applies to.
We will continue to monitor the situation as it develops and will keep you updated on any further changes.
We hope that you, your family and colleagues stay safe and well at this difficult time.
