In these very challenging times, we are here to support you in any way we can. You’ve already heard this week from our CEO Mark Gannon about how the coaching community is playing its part and rising to the massive challenge that we are facing.
As Director of Coaching at UK Coaching, I just wanted to highlight that there is now some more specific news about support that government is providing around the employment market, and in particular for self-employed people. Along with other sector organisations, we have been encouraging government to act decisively and to make sure that the damage to our fantastic coaching workforce across sport and physical activity is minimised wherever possible.
We know that many of you are receiving less work and as such, experiencing significant drops in income. Our coaching workforce is over 3 million strong and many of you who are paid, will also volunteer, which means that the impact that you deliver both through paid work and in communities through volunteering are all at risk if there is not an adequate package of support put in place.
As you’ll have seen, the Government has already announced various support packages for employees and has also made some provision available through deferrals of VAT payments and income tax payments (for those who are required to self-assess for tax purposes). There are also various business interruption loans being introduced.
The Government has now announced its support package for the self-employed. To help you to navigate this, we have summarised the information here.
So we can continue to support you, we would really appreciate you completing the CIMSPA workforce survey, who we are working in conjunction with.
We are here for you so please do keep in touch so we can support you during this testing time. Please keep doing what you are doing by keeping connected online with many, many people who rely on you every day to make their lives healthy and happy.
