Pact offices close

With the UK’s response to the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) developing very rapidly, we have taken the decision to close the Pact offices in London and Leeds with immediate effect from 6:00pm this evening (Tuesday 17th March 2020) until further notice.

The health and wellbeing of our staff, members, and their friends and families is our number one priority, and we feel that this is the most appropriate action to take at this time.
All Pact staff will continue to work remotely and therefore we anticipate very little, if any, noticeable impact on our capacity to support Pact members.
We are fully set up and prepared for remote working and you will still be able to contact us by telephone and by e-mail to discuss any queries you may have.
Please find information at the bottom of this page detailing who at Pact to contact – and how – depending on what your query relates to.
We will also be using Zoom to organise and host remote meetings whilst the offices are closed.
Please do not post anything to the Pact offices during this period, such as membership renewal forms and cheques. You can liaise with our Membership Executive, Adam Turner (contact details below) about alternative options.
We understand that this is a very challenging time. As your trade body, we will do everything in our power to support you and your business. We will continue to monitor the situation as it develops further, and liaise with other key industry bodies on behalf of indies.
For the latest advice that we have compiled specifically for indies, which we will be updating as and when we have new information, can be found here.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any queries.
