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 only, please carefully read the Tenant Guidance before you enter the building and adhere to all measures in place. We have set up a dedicated helpdesk should you have any questions: email@example.com
As we progress Phase 3 of Scotland's 'Route Out of Lockdown' we continue to follow Scottish Government advice which is "Stay safe, protect others, save lives." The Scottish Government have 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'.
Following updates to this Guidance, Wasps will be permitting tenants to re-start workshops from Monday 26th October following the Scottish Government ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance for the community learning and development sector’ which can be found here. We have created a set of Workshop Guidance to help tenants prepare to safely deliver workshops. You can find this guidance and more information here. In line with this guidance Wasps will also be permitting invited visitors to studio buildings whose visit is for the purpose of tenants' practice. Examples of these kinds of visitors would be clients, collaborators, buyers. Any visitors must also follow Tenant Guidance in place.
We are aware of the possibility of localised lockdowns and would like to reassure tenants that we aim to keep your studio accessible for you to work in safely.
• Wasps studio buildings remain closed to the public and visitors until Monday 26 October. 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 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: firstname.lastname@example.org
• 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 endeavor 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.
