Dear Members, we know this is a very stressful and anxious time for many members and for all our colleagues and students, particularly those with underlying health conditions and those with elderly or vulnerable dependants. We hear and recognise your legitimate worries and we are feeding these back when and where possible.
We are acutely aware that good mental and physical wellbeing is at the heart of an effective workforce and COVID-19 has the possibility of causing harm to both; it is important and critical that you look after your own mental wellbeing as well as your physical wellbeing.
We ask ALL members to please support each other and your colleagues, as the situation develops; please share any useful information – we are in this together and we will get through this.
This is likely to get worse before it gets better but remember we are here for YOU if you need support.
Best regards to all, Trevor Jones, AUCSO Chair
