Covid-19 resources

This page is dedicated to Covid19 news – a place where you will be able to find useful help, comments and resources and learn more about how members and advertisers have responded to the pandemic.

The idea is to bring together the collective news, experience and views of the ICG community – helping each other to get through the crisis.

If you have any ideas for the page, or wish to contribute please contact Lucie or Alison .
