Over the coming weeks we’ll be answering the PDA community’s FAQs relating to PDA during the coronavirus pandemic, in a series of video and written Q&As with our advisors.
We’ll add new Q&As to this page as they are ready – and please do let us know if you have any questions you’d like us to answer. Please note we’ll only be able to offer general tips and suggestions so if you have a specific situation or query you need support with, please get in touch with our enquiry line.
