What is the Planning for Coronavirus Community?

This is a community led space for Jisc members responsible for ensuring organisational continuity given the current coronavirus situation. It's here for you to share your concerns and emerging best practice with people in similar positions.

IMPORTANT NOTE - 24/03/2020

The community site has been open for over 2 weeks. Unsurprisingly, the response rate has been high. We've decided to move into Phase 2 now the site is established and to enable us to do that we are going to pause accepting new members.

Your request to join will still be recorded but it may be some time before you receive your confirmation invite. We apologise if this causes you any invconvenience.

You can still access Jisc's main Coronavirus site at for our latest advice and guidance.

Who can join?

This community is open to anyone who is an employee of a Jisc member organisation
