Covid-19 update

CDS is very much open for business. If you’re not already aware, CDS is a critical provider of many public-facing communications services across government, blue lights, health, education, defence and core UK transport/infrastructure services. As you’d expect, our priority right now is ensuring our operational resilience and the availability of our core services when the Nation needs them most.

All CDS staff are, wherever possible, are working from home. We have tested our systems and processes and can assure you that they are robust, stable and sustainable. We have worked diligently over the last two weeks to ensure that we can support our clients away from our normal office environments. Where we are unable to facilitate home working, for example, at our critical communication printing facilities, we have put in stringent measures that protect both our staff and the provision of those services.

Many of our clients operate in industries strategically critical for the Nation, and they rely on our services to ensure their continuity. We can assure you that we are well placed to continue to provide for that responsibility. Already our teams are supporting the collective efforts to fight the Coronavirus epidemic, whether that be ensuring social workers can continue their work interfacing with the most vulnerable members of society, or by printing the legislation papers for the House of Commons to debate and approve emergency legislation.

In addition to services that you use, you may not be aware that our team has a diverse range of skills that may be valuable to you over the coming months.

These include:

  • Insight and research
  • Content creation and distribution (across all media)
  • Digital-based communications
  • Print-based proactive communications
  • Technology-based communications solutions


Critically, we are skilled in developing inclusive and accessible communications toward groups who sometimes find it difficult to engage with mainstream communications.

We are committed to helping all our clients maintain their services and to assist in making their communications effective in the days, weeks or even months ahead.

During this extraordinary time, we are more than ever committed to our purpose of making a positive difference. We care deeply about the wellbeing of our staff, our clients, and helping you during this challenging time.

Wishing you all the best and stay safe.
