It has been our mission to represent the UK leather industry since 1908, with COVID-19 being the biggest disruption to our way of life in living memory. As we head into our third bank holiday weekend since the UK lockdown began almost 10 weeks ago, we'd like to know how you're managing during this unprecedented situation.
Have you switched your focus to make PPE or provide another element of support? Are there opportunities you have spotted during this time, or perhaps you have developed a new skill? What are your immediate concerns, and what concerns do you have for the future? What support do you need in order to continue working in the leather industry?
We're here to listen to your concerns and make recommendations to Government. You will have seen our recent success in lobbying for the elimination of import duty on a range of leather imports from 1st January 2021.
We asked our tanner members for information recently and found the insight very useful. We would now like to survey the wider industry. Please take 3 minutes to answer these quick questions in our online survey here. This will provide us all with a snapshot of how the whole UK leather industry is managing during the Coronavirus crisis.
Thank you very much for your participation.
