Find out how Wasps' response to the Coronavirus pandemic affects you as a Wasps tenant.
Physical distancing and safe working measures are in place at all Wasps buildings to enable you to access your studio should you need to. Wasps’ buildings are currently accessible for tenants who are unable to work from home. Wasps’ buildings are not accessible for workshop participants and guests at this time. Please carefully read the Tenant Guidance before you enter the building and ensure all building users adhere to all measures in place. We have set up a dedicated helpdesk should you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Wasps is obliged to follow Scottish Government advice which is "Stay safe, protect others, save lives." The Scottish Government has published guidance for the creative industries, in particular for providers and users of creative studios in Scotland. You can read this on the Scottish Government website by clicking here. Please pay particular attention to the section titled 'Operational Guide for Studio Users'.
Wasps’ highest priority is to maintain access to our creative spaces for you to work in safely. However, please be aware that we, like other organisations across the country, are obliged to adhere to the guidance provided by the Scottish Government, and at this time the overriding guidance is to stay at home. Only those who cannot work from home are permitted under Scottish Government legislation to visit their workplace.
• Wasps studio buildings remain closed to the general public. This will be reviewed on a regular basis in line with Scottish Government advice and further updates provided to tenants by e-mail when information becomes available.
• All necessary fire, flood and security supervision remains in place.
• Please ensure that we have the correct email for you, so we can keep you up-to-date with any changes. You can check we have your correct details by emailing us: email@example.com
• Wasps staff are working remotely from home and remain on hand to respond to your enquiry during office hours, Mon-Fri, 9.30-5.30. We continue to receive a high volume of enquiries, and may take longer to respond than usual.
Our Board and staff team are aware of the financial implications of the current situation facing many of our tenants, and we endeavour to support you while we lobby for support from the Government and other business support organisations to help not just Wasps but all of the people we support across our buildings.
We have provided some links and additional support information that might be helpful for you to spend some time on developing your practice. You can find out the support available from Wasps here. Find links to financial support available from Creative Scotland and more, here.
