Let’s start with the most important point. Staying healthy and helping to flatten the Covid-19 curve is the reason behind the current lockdown, and this is where our focus needs to be. We’re doing this for ourselves, our families, our cocooned loved ones and the wider population. This is the most important focus for all of us.
At the same time though the world doesn’t stop turning, albeit on a slightly different axis. Loss of jobs and income has unfortunately been an outcome of the current crisis for many people, who now have financial pressure heaped on them too. We would like to set out a few thoughts on how you can emerge from the current crisis in the best financial shape possible whether or not your income has been affected.
