COVID-19 RESPONSE

The Fitzrovia Partnership worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic, adapting existing services to be able to offer the best response for the membership and the area as a whole. Our key focus was safety and security together with member communications to ensure businesses were informed of business-critical information, updated health guidance and travel requirements. Over time, the focus became recovery with a priority on the reactivation of public space and providing greater confidence to the returning business community.

Something not anticipated at the outset of our 2017-22 plan was the arrival of COVID-19 and the challenges provided to business and the wider community.
