Covid-19 Support and Preparedness
March 18, 2020
This message is to inform you of the actions taken by Unilink to provide customer support and
services during the period of the Covid-19 emergency.
First, the safety and well-being of everyone involved in our business, whether directly employed or
otherwise, is my and the Unilink management team’s number one priority. Hence, we have effected
the following plans:
Following tests of our business continuity plans w/c 2nd March, Unilink Group companies are
working from home with over 90% of staff homeworking linked by Zoom, Teams, Slack, diverted
phones and support software as appropriate.
During the business continuity tests Unilink provided support without customers being aware
that we were operating from home offices. Unilink is providing a normal support service and
you, our customers, should not be aware of the changed circumstances.
Where onsite visits are required Unilink will arrange those visits subject to there being low
risk of staff infection and minimal contact. Staff will adhere to customers’ Covid-19 policies
Normal business meetings will continue but will be arranged by Zoom rather than face to
Unilink continues to recruit staff, take on new business and plan projects subject to the
constraints of the necessary restrictions introduced by the pandemic.
I would like to reassure our customers and suppliers that the Unilink Group of companies are
financially stable with long term contracts from central government departments providing reliable
revenue streams. Unilink Group will continue operating, as far as possible normally, throughout the
period of the virus emergency.
If you have any questions about this policy or anything else regarding Unilink’s services during this
period please email our special monitored email address UnilinkCovid-19Hotline@unilink.com
If there is any other way in which Unilink can help, please get in touch.
CEO – Unilink

Email a Prisoner has the following goals:
- To help family and friends communicate easily and frequently with Prisoners.
- To reduce thoughts of self-harm/suicide through increased communication.
- To assist Prisoners in preparation for release with multiple partner agencies.
Communication is a major factor in Prison life and the lack of it can have horrendous consequences. Email a Prisoner offers a quick, efficient, secure alternative method of communication for Prisoners, their families, friends, legal professionals and related organisations - meaning Prisoners can receive more frequent and varied communication.
Documentation continually states Prisoners who are able to maintain family ties are 6 times less likely to re-offend.
