We know how important Ramadan and Eid are for all our Muslim communities. This year, Ramadan falls somewhere near 23/24 April to 22/23 May.

However this is not the case for all charities. The guidance is clear that key worker status applies to staff who are in a position of providing key frontline services (or who are involved in the COVID-19 emergency response).
