Helping Britain Recover plan
Recognising the global pandemic will have lasting social and economic effects on the United Kingdom. Its impact has been felt by everyone, whether through financial hardship, reduced choices, mental distress or personal loss.
Given the pandemic and our unique position at the heart of the UK economy, our priority for the next phase of our strategy is to focus on helping Britain recover and we are committed to working with others in five areas where we can make the most difference.
