Statement on Coronavirus

We understand the challenges and disruptions you are faced with due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Whilst we are all concerned with our own health and that of those around us, the implications for our businesses is also an area of concern.

As you will be aware the situation is constantly changing, so for the latest health advice we suggest you follow the guidelines issued by the NHS. A link can be found here:

A number of members have expressed their concerns about the impact this will have on their business; particularly loss of earnings through clients cancelling appointments or contracting the virus. This seems to be an unavoidable consequence of the situation and makes this a very challenging time for us all.

The UK Government is increasing support to those affected by COVID-19 which includes changes to Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) that you may be eligible to claim for. Eligibility will depend on your individual circumstances, therefore we suggest you contact the Universal Credit Helpline on: 0800 3285644 (choose option 2) Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm.

These are undoubtedly challenging times and the FHA, together with the wider membership are here to provide support for one another throughout this period.
