March 2020

We want to reassure customers of the action we are taking in response to Covid-19.

With the recent and ever-changing news about the Coronavirus in the UK, we understand you may be concerned about the services we provide.

With this in mind, we wanted to reach out and reassure you that we are putting in place a number of robust measures designed to make health and safety a top priority while still providing a secure, quick and efficient service to our customers.

Mayflower has arranged for all of its staff to work from their home. This will not affect the delivery of our services. It is business as usual.

We're working very closely with the DBS and our other partners.

Mayflower is a Company founded on values like being open and honest with our customers and ourselves, so we can assure you that if anything does change, we'll be sure to let you know.
