Dear all clients and friends of Ryder Partnership Ltd,
First and foremost, I hope that you are all keeping well and are settling in where it is the case to “social distancing” mode.

We ourselves are now in that situation however, we will continue to provide a service to anyone that requires it including answering emails and telephone calls. I am also able to have video calls via Zoom.

I will also attend any emergency situations, as long as it is in line with government protocols and healthy to do so.

We will also be updating policies, procedures and risk assessments where this is required.
