COVID-19 Update - 28/05/2020

CSSC is continuously monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 virus in order to be able to react to the changing situation at any time and to adapt our policies and procedures accordingly. The health and safety of our workers, volunteers and members is our top priority and following government guidance we will only open our offices, activities and events when measures are in place to ensure their health and safety.

The Risk Assessment has been produced to reflect our current level of business activity. As the situation develops and changes, we will review, amend and update our working practices for workers and volunteers and put in place control measures to reduce the hazard to a more acceptable level.

We will be keeping this page updated with the very latest information.

Staying COVID-19 Secure in 2020


Which events are cancelled and are there any still running?

We’ve closely followed Government advice and postponed or canceled all out of home activities and events, which we’re looking forward to rescheduling where possible.

Yes. If we cancel an event, we will issue you a full refund or advise you if this has been postponed.

Yes, and we will issue you a full refund. We advise you to follow the current Government advice and guidelines about attending events outside of your home.

The organiser of your event will contact you to explain the steps you need to follow. But in the meantime, please continue to follow current Government advice and guidelines on attending group events.

Yes. If you’re unable to attend due to self-isolation, we will issue you a full refund. While you are self isolating, we will have lots to keep you occupied. Please keep checking the CSSC website for all our updates and new offers.

Events later in the year are still running. If we receive further advice from health officials or the Government, we will of course keep you updated with any changes.

My Savings+ | People Value Update

With the progression of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and in light of the new measures announced by the government yesterday, we wanted to update you on the steps we’ve taken to ensure you continue to benefit from My Savings+ and access all the features you love, while we protect the health and wellbeing of our employees.

We are diligently following the government’s guidance to ensure that our business remains virus-free for as long as possible. We have created a three-stage contingency plan to ensure we operate as usual during this crucial time.

  • peoplevalue’s high-risk employees are working remotely
  • All peoplevalue services are running as usual.

Please note: To facilitate this stage, we have implemented a change to our Customer Services operation whereby phone lines will be on a messaging service as from close of business 17/03/2020 and customer support will be delivered via our peoplevalue's email service only. Please note that this is for My Savings+ queries only. 

Our response times may be slower than usual as a result of this.

  • The majority of peoplevalue’s employees will be working remotely.
  • peoplevalue’s Operations Team will continue to process, fulfil and deliver reloadable gift cards, plastic and digital vouchers, but will downsize to keep social contact to an absolute minimum.
  • During this time, you may experience a slight delay in processes as a result of the reduction in operational resources.
  • In the eventuality of a UK-wide lockdown, all peoplevalue employees will work remotely.

During this stage we would expect physical fulfilment and delivery to be suspended until further notice with the delivery of digital vouchers and e-codes operating normally.

While the situation is uncertain and will continue to progress, our commitment to you, our users, remains. We have been and will continue to work tirelessly to minimise any disruption so that you can still access the services that are powered by us.

Thank you for being a valued user, we hope that you continue to benefit from our services.

If you have any questions about this email, please get in touch with our Customer Services team by email.

If you have any questions concerning this offer please contact the customer services team.
