Business continuity during the Coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic

In line with government guidance, Three Dragons has put in place a plan to continue operating while maintaining our responsibilities to the well-being of our clients, the wider public and our team members.   We will be working from home and communicating with clients and others by phone, email and other electronic media including Zoom, Skype, and Microsoft Teams, using the option that best suits the situation. Through the use of these options, meetings can generally be avoided but we would review this where necessary. 

Three Dragons is very much ‘open for business’ during this difficult time but will rely on new ways of communicating to carry out our work.  If you have any questions please contact lin.cousins@three-dragons.co.uk.
