RIBA guidance on coronavirus (COVID-19)

The RIBA is working hard to provide our members with all the information and tools they need to navigate their way through the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

From lobbying government on the key issues that matter to our sector, to providing practical advice on practice resilience and remote working, we are tailoring our plans and tactics to respond to our members’ feedback and supporting them every step of the way. 

RIBA Chartered Practices can log in and access comprehensive and continually updated advice on employment and HR issues via a telephone service and online business consultancy library.

Information will be shared in our Member Update email each Thursday. Please add to your email contacts, so that you receive it into your inbox.

During this time it’s important to stay in touch. We are here to support you – please email your feedback and queries to
