Further to my earlier conversation 'Coronavirus (COVID-19): How will it affect you and your coaching? (UK Coaching guidance included)'... I thought it might be helpful that there be one conversation in the community where we can share links to specific guidance.
Members of the UK Coaching team will be replying with links but as and when you come across anything of use please do feel free to reply and share it with me and the rest of your fellow community members as we will be continuously promoting this conversation thread
As always stay safe
PS So we can continue to support you it would be great if you could complete the workforce survey which we are supporting with CIMSPA
I’ll kick things off with a summary that colleagues at UK Coaching have put together after the Government yesterday announced a package of support for the self-employed. The team have summarised the provision available and included some helpful links below.
As ever, there is a huge amount of detail that sits behind this. To understand more about your own entitlements, we would strongly recommend that you read these resources in detail: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus These pages include links to several guidance areas, including financial support.
More specific information around self-employment is here: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/chancellor-gives-support-to-millions-of-self-employed-individuals
As ever, we would urge you to note the following:
Thank you Rob
Looking after yourself as a coach
At this time it is more important than ever to look after yourself as a coach. Through our daily Twitter Polls we can see that coaches are concerned about their mental health and general well-being. Last Friday UK Coaching Collaborated with Mind on a special Time 2 Learn session looking at this issue in detail. To access this Webinar please click on the link below.

UPDATE 18 May - Free Mental Health Awareness Online Course
UK Coaching, our awarding body 1st4sport and our partners – Mind and Sport England – are delighted to announce that the online course ‘Mental Health Awareness for Sport and Physical Activity’ is now free to access until 31 August 2020 for the whole coaching community.
Enrol online here.
Carrying on Coaching
We’ve been getting a lot of questions about how to carry on coaching by coaching online or in a virtual setting so I’ve written a series for UK Coaching subscribers where I guide people through the process one step at a time.
Although initially for subscribers the great news is we’ve unlocked them and made the series free until 31 May for anyone who has a UKCoaching.org account – so you just have to register/login to access.
Feel free to share the link to these resources with other coaches you feel these may benefit - the more coaches we can help to carry on coaching through these unprecedented times the better!
Hopefully coaches and community members will find the series helpful.
Last week we also dedicated one of our Time2Learn webinars to delivering great coaching online, if you missed it don't worry you can now access it for free if you have a UKCoaching.org account.
Register or login to watch it on demand.
Update 14 May: Some of the key points coaches in England should consider before resuming coaching.
As you would expect, the ‘return to play’ agenda is dominating coaching discussions following the limited loosening of lockdown measures. Coaches have a key role to play in the nation’s recovery and we would really value your thoughts and ideas.

Financial and legal guidance
Thanks for posting this guidance on behalf of the team Rob. The situation has been constantly changing as we can all appreciate. We know a lot of coaches have been keen in particular to learn more about the implications on tax and self-employment.
We have been in discussions with our partners at CIMSPA and SRA throughout Covid-19 to help support the sector. They have set up a helpful areas on their websites that are continually being update so I thought I would share some links to help the coaching community.
They have also just created CIMSPA Stronger Together - a new Facebook Group designed to provide additional support for self-employed individuals and businesses during the coronavirus crisis.
It would also be worth bookmarking the Sport and Recreation Alliance Covid-19 news section which is continuously updated with relevant information about the latest tax guidance and support for self-employed workers
Hope everyone finds these helpful
UPDATE 6 MAY: Upcoming Webinar: Understanding the Legal and Financial Information for Coaches
