COVID-19 Statement

We are following the recent changes in guidelines and the new tier system. As an education provider, we are able to open and offer our educational courses and trainings. Please note that additional safety measures are being put in place to ensure the safety of our guests and our team. Hawkwood is in Gloucestershire, Tier 2. We are accepting people from Tier 1 & 2, but regrettably, our policy is not to accept people from Tier 3.
Please rest assured we are monitoring all government advice closely and updating our services and offer accordingly.

At Hawkwood we have been working hard to ensure your safety and that of our team as we reopen to all our wonderful guests.

We have implemented a Safety Protocol for Residential Guests and Day Delegates in order to welcome you to a secure venue following recommended government guidelines. Please see our COVID Risk Assessment. The health and wellbeing of our community are paramount.

For those of you visiting Hawkwood for the first time, we’re really looking forward to welcoming you and we hope you will have an in-depth, inspirational learning experience supported by our beautiful place.

For those of you who have been to Hawkwood for many years, there have inevitably been some changes in the way we operate to ensure your safety in these challenging times.  However, this won’t stop us from giving you the warmest welcome we can without actually giving you a hug!  Some of the changes you may notice include being served individually at the kitchen hatch rather than our usual table service, greater spacing of our guests in our dining room, and hugely increased cleaning rotas. Your time at Hawkwood is about learning and regrettably, we can not allow socialising after the timetabled courses finish. We will go above and beyond in our new protocols to support everyone during their stay.

We would be grateful if you would wear your masks in the corridors and in your group rooms, keep your group rooms well ventilated and where possible email us on info@hawkwoodcollege.co.uk if you need support rather than visit the office during your stay. You will also be required to fill out a self-declaration form 48 hours prior to arrival to support the government scheme.

We will continue to offer our online programme and looking at other ways in which Hawkwood can be of service to the community at this time.

Hawkwood is on the outskirts of Stroud which is in tier 2 area and we are rigorously applying the Covid-secure protocols which you can find above.

If you live in a tier 3 area

If you live in a tier 3 area, in order to protect our guests and staff, we are very sorry that we will not be able to accept you onto a course held at Hawkwood.

Like many other charities, Hawkwood is facing major financial challenges as a result of the Coronavirus. In order to preserve and protect our Centre for Future Thinking in the immediate and long term, we urgently need your help. If you are in a secure position please consider donating money to make it possible for Hawkwood to recover and continue.
