Coronavirus Hub
Join a virtual working group to help solve three major challenges

Business: let’s rise to the challenge together


It will take a concerted effort – from government, from people, and importantly – from business – to help tackle the impact of coronavirus. That’s why we’re asking businesses like yours to help solve three major challenges where firms coming together could make a big difference for society. Each virtual group will bring together business, government and trade associations over the course of a few weeks to understand the challenge, to build strong networks and to find solutions. Join one of three virtual working groups:



  • Redeploy people: How can low and high demand sectors work together to keep people employed and key services running?
  • Keep the nation healthy: Can you help deliver a package of support for people to maintain their physical and mental wellbeing?
  • Support families in hardship: Can you help provide food / logistical / IT support for families facing financial hardship? 


Can you provide critical PPE supplies?

Help protect the UK's front line workers



The government is urgently seeking the support of businesses who may be able to provide critical PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), including PPE masks, surgical gowns and disposable gloves.

  • This equipment helps protect the UK's front line health workers and helps them to feel safe when undertaking their jobs
  • If you are able to help, please register your support here
  • If you are unsure whether you are able to support, read the technical specifications for PPE here
  • If you have queries or additional offers, please email the CBI's Business Heroes inbox.

Can your business support the national effort?

With the coronavirus pandemic impacting across all areas of society - organisations and public bodies providing key services need support. Could your business provide the help they need?
