The Wise Group Statement on COVID-19

Sean Duffy, Chief Executive of the Wise Group said:  “As more and more people across the UK are impacted by the coronavirus, I want our funders, partners and customers to know that we are working hard to put continuity measures in place at this very difficult time.

The Wise Group has put the following short term measures in place:

To our partners and funders

  • Our partners and funders are at the centre of our considerations. We have written to all of our partners and funders, will have follow-up calls with all of them and will continue to engage with them regularly to provide assurances that we are monitoring the delivery of our obligations closely and acting accordingly

To our customers

  • We have strengthened our ‘pre visit check list’ to make sure that our colleagues contact you in advance to ask about any new cough or temperature. We also want to make sure that that both parties are committed to good personal hygiene and keeping appropriate distances at any meeting
  • Where it is not possible to meet we will offer to conduct the meeting by telephone

It is clear to me that our new strategy and investment in technology has been a pillar to our sustainability and enhanced resilience. Thank you to colleagues across the enterprise for working hard to monitor updates and coordinate our response at this time.

It’s important to remember that hundreds of people and our partners are relying on us.  I hope these additional actions will help us continue to support lifting people out of poverty.”
